Step 1

Slice beef thinly against the grain. (Note 3)

Step 2

Place in a bowl. Sprinkle over baking soda, toss with fingers to coat evenly.

Step 3

Refrigerate for 30 to 40 minutes. (See Note 1 for different cuts)

Step 4

Rinse beef well with tap water. Shake off excess water, then use paper towels to blot away excess water (doesn't need to be 100% dry).

Step 5

Proceed with recipe of choice. Beef can be marinated or seasoned before cooking, stir fried or deep fried, and it will be soft and tender, "velvet" like. Use for Stir Fries, Stir Fried Noodles, Beef Stroganoff and any other recipe calling for quick-cooked beef strips.
