Cantonese Tomato Beef!

I have always enjoyed cooking this style of food but I have never found a recipe that I would use again & again. It’s either too much prep, too many pots, too many ingredients etc. I like simple, quick & tasty food with little fuss & as few pots as possilbe! When I came across this recipe, I took one look and thought… hang on, this might just be the one! There’s few ingredients, all of which I like and the only prep there is is marinading the meat & chopping a few things. This is a Foodgawker recipe from Diana at Apetite for China. It’s been sat in my favourites list for quite some time now so I thought it’s about time I make it!

What you will need:

  • 450g approx Flank steak (I used Sirloin as could not find flank)
  • 1 x Onion
  • 2 x Cloves of garlic
  • 450g approx Tomatoes


  • 1 tbsp Soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp Chinese rice wine
  • 1 tsp Corn flour


  • 2 tbsp Worcester sauce
  • 1/2 tbsp Soy sauce
  • 1/2 tbsp Chinese rice wine

First you need to slice your steaks. Make sure you do this across the grain or you will get very chewy pieces of meat! Then mix the ingredients for the marinade together and place in a bowl with the steak, mix well and leave for as long as you can… but at least 30mins minimum. 

Next you need to chop your garlic, tomatoes & onion. Make the tomatoes & onion fairly chunky. Also, mix together the ingredients for the sauce and set to one side.

When the steak has had sufficient marinading time, heat 1 tbsp of oil in a wok. When its hot enough, swirl the oil around the sides, cook the steak until its browned but not cooked through & remove from the wok. Next, add the garlic & onion and cook for about 30secs then toss in the tomatoes. After a minute or so, add the sauce to the wok. Keep cooking until the onions have softened slightly but the tomatoes can still hold there shape. Add the meat back into the wok until it’s cooked through then serve in warmed bowls with rice or noodles.

I am pleased to say that this recipe was unbelievably quick to make, very few pots, minimum fuss with few ingredients & very very tasty!

Definitely a winner in my house, will most certainly be making again. 

That’s all for this weekend guys and gals.

Hope you enjoyed the read & don’t forget to subscribe if you like what you see!
