Crispy Beef

A quick and easy to make restaurant styled beef starter. Came across this dish at a restaurant here recently with bell peppers (I have not added), the beef seemed to have been deep fried (was too oily, so I shallow fried in the recipe). So basically marinated beef strips , shallow fried and then added sauces that I had handy with me.
