Chile and garlic beef

Here's a lovely change of pace from Sesame Beef.  Much as we love the stuff, we need variety :-)

Chile and Garlic Beef

1 lb thin-sliced beef
2 T soy sauce
1 t sugar
1 t cornstarch
1 T sherry
1 T hoisin sauce
1 t rice vinegar
2 t chile and garlic paste
Vegetable oil
1 T fresh ginger, minced
2 cloves of garlic, minced
12 scallions, sliced into 2 inch pieces
Rice noodles
Pickled ginger

Place the beef in a crock pot with a little bit of water or broth.  Allow to cook on low for several hours until the fibers begin to break down.

Start water boiling for the rice noodles.  Combine the soy sauce through the salt and set aside.  In a large skillet, saute the ginger and garlic in oil until just softened.  Add the beef and scallions.  Saute quickly to soften the scallions.  Add the sauce and cook for a few minutes until thickened.  Serve over rice noodles with pickled ginger on the side.
