    1. Mix together 1 teaspoon sake, 1 teaspoon soy sauce, 1 teaspoon oyster sauce and 3 tablespoons of egg white. Pour over the beef and mix or massage into the meat.
    2. Pour enough oil into the bottom of a wok and heat until it's hot enough to allow you to deep-fry the beef. Fry the beef in batches for 5 minutes or so, or until they are crispy. Drain on kitchen paper.
    3. Once the meat is cooked, pour off any remaining oil. Add garlic and ginger and stir-fry over medium heat for 1 or 2 minutes. Add the spring onions and toss to cook.
    4. Mix together the ingredients for the sauce: 2 tablespoons of water, 2 tablespoons sake, 1 tablespoon oyster sauce, 2 teaspoons sugar and 2 tablespoons soy sauce.
    5. Add previously fried beef and pour over the stir fry sauce. Keep tossing everything for another minute or so, then serve immediately.
