A simple to make but very flavorful dish for when you want something beefy and don't want to go to a whole lot of trouble.

Prep
  1. Slice BEEF thin across the grain, then into narrow strips less than 1/4 inch wide.
  2. Soak MUSHROOMS in warm water for at least 1/2 hour, then remove stems and slice caps into strips of similar size to the beef.
  3. Dry roast white SEASAME SEEDS until light golden.
  4. Crush GARLIC and chop fine.d
  5. Cut SCALLIONS into 2 inch lengths.
Run
  1. In a spacious sauté pan or wok, heat Oil and fry Beef over moderate flame, stirring until all raw color is gone, then stir in Mushrooms and Garlic. Continue to fry stirring for another 2 minutes.
  2. Stir in Sesame Seeds, Scallions, Salt and Soy Sauce. Fry stirring for another 2 minutes.
  3. Stir in Sesame Oil and immediately turn off heat.
  4. Serve with plenty of medium grain Rice. My favorite is Kokuho Rose from California.
NOTES:
  1. Beef:   Weight is with all excess fat removed. On the other hand, beef with too little fat lacks flavor, there should be a little marbled through it.
  2. Black Mushroom:   These are the same dried Shiitakes found in every Asian market and many supermarkets.
  3. Sesame Seeds:   Toasted sesame seeds are almost always used. If you don't have them, just dry pan roast white sesame seeds, stirring and shaking, until they are a medium blonde color. For details see our Toasted Sesame Seeds page.
  4. U.S. measure: t=teaspoon, T=Tablespoon, c=cup, qt=quart, oz=ounce, #=pound, cl=clove in=inch, ar=as required tt=to taste
