Ginger beef is crispy strips of steak tossed with a sweet and spicy sauce. If you are a fan of Mongolian beef, you will love this recipe. Of course, I’m adding a Kilimanjaro’s Sunrise Ginger Syrup and African Jerk Sauce to give it a bit of a different flavor.

Ingredients:

Ingredients:
1lb sirloin steak (sliced into thin strips)
¾ cup cornstarch
½ cup water
2 eggs
1 large carrot (julienned)
3 green onions (chopped)
¼ cup Sunrise Ginger Syrup
2 tablespoons Kilimanjaro African Jerk Sauce
Canola oil (for frying)
3 tablespoons soy sauce
4 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 tablespoon sesame oil
½ cup sugar

Instructions:

Step 1: In a bowl add cornstarch and then gradually add water while whisking. Beat eggs into cornstarch/water mixture. Add sliced steak strips and toss to coat. Pour 1 inch of oil into a wok, heat oil to 375 degrees or until oil is hot enough to fry the steak strips. Add a quarter of the steak strips at a time to the wok. Separate with a fork and cook stirring frequently until crispy. Drain on paper towels. Repeat until all the steak is gone (*you can also use a deep fryer for this).

Step 2: Drain all oil out of the wok except for 1 tablespoon. Add green onion, carrots, ginger syrup and jerk sauce. Stir fry for 30 seconds-1 minute.

Step 3: In a small bowl combine soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, sugar and red pepper flakes. Add to the wok and bring the mixture to a boil. Add beef, heat thorough and serve.
(Makes 2 Servings)

Hawaiian chicken

Hawaiian chicken is one of my favorite dishes. I just love the flavors involved and how they mingle together. So I guess it was natural for me to experiment with adding Kilimanjaro’s Sunrise Ginger Syrup to one of my Hawaiian chicken dishes. The recipe I’ll be sharing in this article went over very well at a BBQ I hosted this past weekend and all my guests wanted to know what the “something extra” was they were tasting. I told them they’d have to read my article to find out! So here is my recipe for Grilled Hawaiian  Chicken with  Ginger Syrup.

Directions
1. Mix all marinade ingredients and add chicken. Marinate for 1 to 2 hours, no more.
2. Heat grill to medium-high.
3. Place chicken on grill and pineapple rings on chicken and grill until chicken is cooked through (about 5 minutes on each side depending on the thickness of the chicken).
