Recipe Notes

Velveting:
The most important step is to marinade the beef in a mixture of cornflour and vinegar.
The technique that most Chinese restaurants use to create that tenderised texture we love so much is called velveting.
Velveting can be made up of a mixture of egg whites, baking soda and wine, but we are using cornflour, rice wine vinegar and soy sauce to make this a permanent emulsion marinade.
