Even though the dish is called Hawaiian chopped steak, we won't use expensive steak cuts. It doesn't make sense. Behind the sweetness, soy sauce and other flavor components, you just won't feel the difference between the steak and the cheaper parts of beef. Take the shoulder part or sirloin. We'll marinate the meat in soy sauce, which will make it softer. We roast it with garlic and ginger, infusing it with bright flavors. Then we quickly stir-fry the vegetables, making sure they are lightly browned but still crispy. Finally, mix everything together in a sweet and sour sauce. Thanks to the starch in the sauce, it will make the dish glossy and appetizing.
500gbeef meat(shoulder-part or sirloin, you can use more expensive steak cuts, but I do not see the point)
30-40gginger(5-7 cm long piece)
1red bell pepper
1tsp.white wine vinegar
Slice the meat into long thin strips and marinate in a mixture of sugar and soy sauce. Stir to combine. Leave for 20-60 minutes.
Prepare the sauce. Mix the starch, wine vinegar and water. Stir until smooth.
Finely chop the garlic, peel the ginger and cut it into thin julienne strips. Set aside.
Peel and slice two onions into half rings. Cut the red bell peppers into long slices about 1 cm thick.
Drain off the excess marinade. You can add it to the sauce for a richer flavor. Heat oil in a large frying pan or wok. Add the garlic and stir-fry for 10 seconds. Add sliced beef. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring. Remove finished beef with a slotted skimmer and set aside in a clean plate.
Add a little more oil and pour the onions into the pan. Cook for 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly, until golden. Add bell peppers and cook for 1-2 minutes more.
Return beef to skillet, stir in vegetables and pour in sauce. Cook stirring for 1-2 minutes more. Serve with boiled rice.
