Bistek Stir Fry

Bistek Stir Fry. I am always a fan of stir fry beef , what ever type of they really are great. Stir fry are mostly used if Chinese cooking. The Ilocanos use these method of cooking to some of the popular beef dishes, imbaliktad (tossed or flipped) and kinigtot (stunned), both method beef are quickly stir cooked at high heat or boiled for a few minutes. Premium beef cuts are best cooked this way other wise it tend to get harder if cooked a little longer.
