Chinese Beef with Young Dragon
In a wok or large sauté pan over high heat, bring the water to a boil. Add the young dragon fruit and cook for 2 minutes. Drain , discarding the water. Set a aside.
Return the wok to medium-high heat. Add the oil to the wok and heat until the oil begins to shimmer. Add the beef strips and stir-fry until the beef changes color, about 1 minute. Remove the beef with a slotted spoon. Pour off all but 2 tablespoons of the oil.
Add the garlic and ginger to the wok and stir-fry for 1 minute. Add the young dragon fruit , scallions, bell pepper, and carrots and stir-fry for 1 minute. Add the mushrooms and bamboo shoots and stir-fry for 1 minute. Return the beef to the wok and add the black bean sauce and soy sauce. Stir-fry for 1 minute, or until the beef is cooked through. Serve at once, with white rice.
