Fried Peppered Beef
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 8
  • 21/2 pounds of a tender and flavorful cut of beef (cut into 1-11/2inch pieces)
  • 1tsp of black pepper
  • 1tsp of white pepper
  • ½an inch of grated ginger(grated)
  • 2 garlic cloves(grated)
  • ½tbsp of thyme
  • 1-2maggi cubes. Any bouillon works
  • salt to taste
  • ½-1tbsp of vegetable or peanut oil
  • oil for deep frying
  1. wash and pat meat dry. Cut into 1½ inches. Season with the ingredients and marinate for 1-24hours(I did mine for 48hours). This marinating process helps the meat not only to be well seasoned, but to be tender
  2. In a deep fryer heat some vegetable oil to 350degrees and fry beef until golden brown. Do not over crowd fryer.
  3. serve the beef like that with some chili pepper or toss in some atadindin...It is best served with atadindin as the peppered sauce permeates the meat for a whole lot of flavor
In a situation where you cannot find a tender cut of beef, you may use any cut of beef you want. Follow the marinating process and boil for a few minutes to soften afterwards; then drain and fry...
