Cooking up some Chinese style carne asada!

Posted on Updated on

Today is Sunday, our day of rest. Of course for me, it’s always a day of cooking, too. Using my new Canon G7X I filmed a recipe for tudou niurou,  牛肉和土豆, or beef and potatoes.

Tudou niurou, Chinese beef and potatoes with onions, lajiao and cilantro.

The recipe itself is very simple, and the ingredients are few:

  • 5-6 medium potatoes with the skins included
  • 350-500g cubed beef
  • Garlic powder
  • Red pepper
  • Cumin
  • Salt
  • 1 whole onion chopped
  • Cilantro (optional)
  • 2 teaspoons Chinese lajiao (拉脚) OR
    • 2-3 red chili peppers chopped with seeds

Directions: Cut the potatoes in cubes and cut the beef into smaller cubes, like the size of what you would see in a Mexican style burrito. Add olive oil to pan and let it heat up for 10-20 seconds. Add potatoes, stir to coat in oil, then leave for 10-12 minutes minimum. While the potatoes are cooking, slice the beef and the whole onion. Also, add 2 teaspoons of lajiao or 2-3 chopped red chili peppers at this time. After potatoes have been cooking for 12 minutes, add the beef and spices. Stir, and allow to cook for 5 minutes more. After 5 minutes goes by, add the onion and some more spices if desired and cook for 3-5 moe minutes. Add in chopped cilantro at the end and stir it in. Serve and enjoy!
