Recipe Description:

Cantonese dishes tend to have a light touch when it comes to spices, which is why the level of black pepper used in this dish might seem surprising. But cooked in this intense stir-fry, the pepper is soothed somewhat and takes on a lingering, umami quality that draws out all the flavours of the beef. The origin of the dish is unknown— it may be a Hong Kong creation inspired by Western-style peppercorn sauces, or it may be a twist on a slightly milder pork dish from neighbouring Fujian province. Wherever it comes from, this iconic stir-fry favourite is now popular the world over.
