Veal may not be the most obvious choice for a Chinese stir-fry, but this recipe demonstrates why it can be an alternative to pork, chicken, or beef. The veal is marinated in a mix of soy sauce, garlic, and hot sauce, an essential flavor-building step that pays off in the end. Red and green bell peppers and shallots round out the one-pot (or one-wok) meal, with a flavorful sauce tying them together.

Ingredients

  • 400 grams veal
  • 100 milliliters soy sauce
  • 1 garlic clove
  • hot sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • sherry vinegar
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • 1 shallot
  • salt
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch

Directions

  1. Add 50 milliliters of soy sauce, the garlic, and a few drops of hot sauce to a bowl and mix well. Add the veal and coat well. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
  2. Add the remaining soy sauce to a bowl with the sugar, a splash of sherry vinegar, and a few drops of hot sauce. Mix well.
  3. Remove the veal from the marinade and saute in a skillet with a tablespoon of oil on high heat. Saute for a couple of minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  4. Add the bell peppers and shallot and saute for 5 minutes.
  5. Add the meat to the vegetables and cook for a couple of minutes. Add the sauce. Stir well. Add a teaspoon of cornstarch diluted in a splash of water to help thicken the sauce. Simmer for 5 minutes.
  6. Serve warm on rice.

I have never had veal prepared this way so I was quite excited to try this recipe. It was really good. I love Chinese food and hadn't thought to use veal in a stir fry style dish. I am glad that I gave it a try because this was good and my husband raved over the dish!
