牙签牛肉 (yá qiān niú ròu), literally 'toothpick beef'.
Thinly sliced slivers of beef, approx 5cm x 3cm, marinated in soy sauce and garlic then sprinkled with threaded onto toothpicks, spiced as below, then deep fried. Can be served hot or cold.
- Type a) Chilli flakes and cumin (illustrated)
- Type b) Cumin and sesame seeds
I usually make a batch of each: type a) for the sensible people and type b) for the chilli wimps. 😃
