Start off with whisking a few egg whites in a bowl until they are nice and fluffy. Cut your beef into bite-size pieces, you can also use chicken and add them into the bowl with the egg whites. Add a few corn starch and some salt and then mix that well then set it aside to marinate for 30 minutes. While it’s marinating, get your sauce starting with hoisin sauce, ketchup, oyster sauce, sweet Thai chili sauce, a little bit of low sodium soy sauce, apple cider vinegar, a little bit of water, some sugar and red pepper flakes.
Mix that well and then set it aside. Take a big bowl and add a little bit of corn starch to that bowl and then add the marinated beef. Mix the meat very well with the corn starch, before frying your meat, hit it with some corn starch to give it that extra crispy exterior. The next thing you will do is fry your meat u until it is nice and crispy, they cook pretty fast so make sure you do not over fry your meat stripes. Once you are done frying add onions on an oiled skillet and some red peppers and let that cook until it starts to get nice and brown in the edges. Remove it and set it aside then add the sauce and let it simmer until it gets nice and thick.
Add the onions red peppers in and the meat back in the skillet. Increase the heat to medium-high and let it continues to cook until well coated, nice and thick. Serve with white rice and enjoy.
