Ga Lei Se Dik (Chinese Beefsteak in Curry Sauce)

1 teaspoon sugar
2 tablespoons light soy sauce
4 tablespoons oil
1 lb sirloin steaks (about 2 cups) or 1 lb flank steak, trimmed and sliced into 1/4-inch thick strips (about 2 cups)
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon curry powder
12 cup chicken stock or 12 cup water
1 garlic clove, minced
2 slices gingerroot, shredded
18 teaspoon salt
1 cup onion, sliced and separated into rings
chopped scallion (to garnish)


Mix together the sugar, soy sauce and 1 Tbsp oil; use mixture to marinate the sliced beef for 30 minutes. Drain the marinade from the beef and add the cornstarch, curry powder and chicken stock to the marinade. Dry-heat wok or large skillet over high heat, then add 1 1/2 Tbsp oil and use to stir-fry the garlic, ginger and salt until garlic and ginger are golden brown. Add the marinated beef and brown quickly on outside, about 1 minute; remove to a bowl. Clean wok or pan and heat it hot and dry again; add 1 1/2 Tbps oil and stir-fry onion rings until golden brown. Stir in the curry-marinade mixture and heat, stirring, until it thickens. Return beef to the pan, mixing thoroughly. Serve garnished with shopped scallions.
