Ingredients
  Rump steak 3 Tablespoon
  Oil for deep frying 2 Cup (32 tbs) (For deep frying)
  Salt To Taste
  Ginger sherry 1 Tablespoon
  Bitter melon 3 Tablespoon
  Ginger slices 3
  Garlic 1 Clove (5 gm)
  Black soya beans 1 Tablespoon
  Peanut oil 1 Tablespoon
  Sesame oil 1 Tablespoon
  Soy sauce 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Sugar 1 Tablespoon
  Chicken stock 5 Tablespoon
  Cornflour 1 Teaspoon (Leveled)
  Water 1 Tablespoon
Directions

Cut the steak diagonally into thin slices.
Add a tiny pinch salt, tiny pinch Ve-Tsin, few drops sherry, 1/2 teaspoon cornflour and work well into the steak.
Cut the bitter melon into strips and drop them into boiling water for 5 minutes.
Drain, drop into cold water to crisp them and drain again.
Crush the ginger, garlic and black bean and mix them together to a paste.
Let enough oil for deep frying be heating gradually.
Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a frying-pan.
Add the ginger-garlic-bean mixture and the bitter melon and cook for a few seconds, tossing and moving them about.
Add 1/2 teaspoon ginger sherry, sesame oil, soy sauce, sugar (because the melon is still a little bitter), stock and another pinch salt and pinch Ve-Tsin.
Bring to the boil and cook for 3 minutes.
The deep oil should by now have reached a temperature of 375°F. or 190°C. that is when a dried slice of raw potato, dropped into it, rises quickly to the surface.
Fry the steak in it for 2-3 minutes.
Blend the cornflour with the water, stir it into the first mixture and boil for 1 1/2 minutes.
Add the drained fried meat.
