Chinese Style Beef Steak for Breakfast!

I cooked this Chinese style beef steak for my son so that he can enjoy a good breakfast before going to school. Sometime he has to stay back quite late in school for extra curricular activities and I guess it is good for him to start the day right with a heavy breakfast with lots of protein. I marinated the meat the night before and it takes just 20 minutes to prepare this breakfast for him. In order to add some carbohydrates, I fried some potato wedges as a side dish for him. I used the leftover marinate to make the sauce so that it will not go to waste. To do that just adds butter and make the sauce thick by adding corn flour mix with water. Here is my recipe for Chinese Style Beef Steak.

Ingredients
Beef cuts, tenderloin would be great

Marinate
Light soya sauce, 2 table spoons
Worcestershire sauce, 1 teaspoon
Oregano, ½ teaspoon
Thyme, 1 teaspoon
Cinnamon, ½ teaspoon
Pepper, to taste
Salt to taste
Corn Flour, 1 teaspoon
Lemon juice from ¼ lemon

Sauce
Use the leftover marinate, add some butter and thicken with corn flour mix with water. You can also add onions to this sauce. Marinate the beef overnight or for at least 1 hour. Put some olive oil in frying pan and fry the beef steak to either medium rare or well done. I prefer it to be well done as I am not used to eat medium rare steak. Pour the sauce on the steak and served with fresh green salads and potato wedges.

Wow...you certainly have been doing a lot of cooking! Haven't had beef for a long time. Can't get fresh beef here...and the imported stuff - only good for curry and stew. Australian, no less. Others may have some horrible smell, like those from India - they say!

STP : Ha ha, thing we do for the kids. I have tried out Indian beef, actually the beefy smell is ok but the meat is a bit tough. Have to simmer for a while to soften.
