3. Add half of oil to wok and heat over moderate heat until hot. Add beef
and peppercorns, increase heat to high and stir-fty for 3-4 mins until beef
is browned. Remove wok from heat and tip beef and juices into bowl. Set

4. Return wok to moderate heat. Add remaining oil and heat until hot. Add
pepper, chiles, ginger and garlic and stir-fry for 2-3 mins until softened,
taking care not to let ingredients brown.

5. Return beef and its juices to wok and stir to mix with vegetables. Stir

My notes: Delicious! G made this, replacing szechuan peppercorns with
mixed peppercorns. Try adding more vegetables (and increase sauce) to make
meat go further. Serve over rice.
