Lillian's Mongolian Beef
1 lb extra-lean ground beef
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tbs dry white wine
2 tbs sherry
2 tbs rice vinegar
1/2 cup baby carrots, cut in chunks
1/4 tsp grated ginger
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tsp creamy peanut butter
2 tbs dark sesame oil for frying
1/2 cup chopped scallions
Heat a wok or large heavy skillet. Add sesame oil. Add ground beef, carrots and garlic and brown well. Continue browning until all the meat juice is evaporated.
Add all other ingredients except the scallions. Stir well and heat until sauce is reduced by half--about 5 minutes.
Serve over rice. Top with chopped scallions.
