Budget Dinner: Beef & Radish in Chu Hou Sauce Recipe

Fresh beef meat is getting really expensive these days. In Hong Kong, always eating at home does not always mean that you'll spend a lot less! 
Here's how to make the most out of HK$20 beef for dinner. My mil's recipe ;)

- HK$20 beef meat, sliced thinly just like for stir frying. This saves cooking time too.
- half a medium radish, skin peeled off & cut into chunks
- 2 cloves garlic, crushed
- 1 cm ginger, crushed
- 1 tbsp Chu Hou sauce (we use Lee Kum Kee)
- a bit of cooking oil
- just enough water to cook the beef & radish

Saute garlic & ginger until fragrant. Add beef, add radish, add sauce, add water, cook until radish chunks are soft.

There's so little beef in this dish but it feels so... hearty :)
Enjoy it with 2 bowls of steamed rice or use it as noodles/pasta sauce.

Save the money for your next fancy restaurant meal... or shoes :)
