To make the marinade, simply mix all of the ingredients in a bowl. Add the strips of beef to marinate, then cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes but ideally overnight.

Heat the chilli garlic oil in a wok or frying pan on a medium-high heat.

Add the green tea leaves and dried chilli and stir fry for approximately 30 seconds, or until fragrant.

Add the beef and any left-over marinade and stir fry for 2 minutes until brown.

Add the leek, carrot and fresh chilli and stir fry for 2 minutes. Stir in the ginger and garlic sauce, reduce the heat slightly and cook for a further 2 minutes.

Season to taste and serve immediately with rice or noodles (serves 4).
