Next, the second step is pickling the beef. Most of the people who have cooked beef before know that beef can turn hard easily. For this reason, using egg white is necessary to make the beef soft. After cutting the beef, should be mixed it with the white for more than 15 minutes. If a cook prefers, he or she can mix a little bit of pepper and sugar into it too. Thus, adding the white is the key point to pickle beef.
Finally, the third step is frying. When the oil almost smokes, people can put the fragments of green onion and ginger into the pan. Then, people should take the beef and cumin in the pan. As usual, people need to put cumin in the pan at least twice. The second time is when you want to take out the beef. After about 20 minutes, the fried step will be done.
Overall, the procedure is super easy to learn and command. In short, it is just three steps. This dish is traditional Chinese food. This cumin-fried beef is delicious and easy to make.
