This is my all-time favourite from the Chinese takeaway. I rarely order anything else and am always on the hunt for an amazing one. Unfortuntely since living in Tamworth I am yet to find anything that compares to ‘Golden Lee’ on London Road in Sheffield where I was a student. So the time has come to see if I can make it myself to satisfy my Chilli beef cravings!
After trawling through a few books and quite a few internet recipes I settled on the one on BBC food by Simon Rimmer. I have stuck basically to his recipe, but added in some extra shredded red chilli as well as the chilli flakes, a finely sliced shallot and finely shredded carrot, but left out the battered carrot.

I think I didn’t shake of the excess batter mixture quite enough when I made it, the batter was a little too thick for me.
Happy eating 🙂
