Baked Sweet & Sour Beef

Baked Chinese Sweet and Sour Beef Recipe by Ash's In The Kitchen

I haven’t made Sweet & Sour anything in ages! I decided to try it with beef that I floured and baked in the oven. It came out so delicious! I’m definitely making this again. Soon!

Beef Marinade:

2 lbs Beef roast; cut into 1” cubes

1 Tablespoon Spicy Mustard

½ cup Soy Sauce,

¼ teaspoon Crushed Red Pepper

3 cloves Garlic; minced

2 teaspoons Cornstarch

½ cup Flour

1 teaspoons Sesame Oil

Pinch of Ginger, Garlic Powder, Salt and Pepper

1 cup Bell Pepper; coarsely chopped

1 cup Onion; coarsely chopped

½ cup Carrot; chopped

1 Tablespoon Sesame Oil

½ teaspoon Ginger Powder

¼ teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes

½ teaspoon Garlic Powder

Salt and Pepper to taste

3 cups Sweet & Sour Sauce

  1. Place the beef marinade ingredients in a large ziplock bag and marinate for 2 hours in the fridge.
  2. Preheat oven to 375°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Remove the beef from the marinade and discard any excess. Add the meat, salt pepper, flour and cornstarch to a medium bowl and toss to coat.
  4. In a large bowl, combine the peppers, onions, carrots, sesame oil and spices; tossing to coat. Spread them evenly over the parchment paper.
  5. Place a wire rack over the vegetables and layer the beef evenly over top. Spritz with oil and bake for 30 minutes, or until beef is crispy on the outside.
  6. Meanwhile, heat a skillet or wok over medium heat and bring the sauce ingredients, minus the soy sauce and cornstarch, to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer for 20 minutes. In a small bowl, whisk the soy sauce and cornstarch then pour the slurry into the sauce; stirring until thickened. Add beef and vegetables to the pan and toss to coat.
  7. Serve with steamed rice and enjoy!
