Crisp beef

Yield: 6 servings

Measure Ingredient
½ pounds Lean Beef Chuck or Round
1 \N Clove Garlic, chopped
½ teaspoon Salt
¼ teaspoon Fresh Ground Black Pepper
1 tablespoon Dark Brown Sugar
½ tablespoon Molasses
2 tablespoons Lime Juice
¼ teaspoon Ground Coriander
1 cup Water
2 tablespoons Peanut Oil

Cut the meat in thin slices along the grain, not across it. Pound the slices until they almost fall apart. Put the meat and all the other ingredients except the Oil in a heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce the heat to medium low and cook, stirring now and then, until the liquid has evaporated. Remove the meat and tear it into fine strips using two forks. Scrape the bottom of the pan to gather the residue, add the oil and set it over Medium heat. When the oil is hot add the meat shreds and fry, stirring, until they are crisp and dark brown. Drain on paper towels before serving.
