The picture was taken by me, I cooked it myself. But the below recipe/ingredient got it from


1/2 lb beef sirloin, sliced into thin strips

1 large bitter gourd (ampalaya); cleaned and sliced

1/2 cup soy sauce

1 tablespoon sesame oil

1 medium-sized onion, thinly sliced lengthwise

1 small thumb ginger, julienned

6 cloves garlic, minced

1 tablespoon cornstarch

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

1 cup water or more if necessary

5 tablespoons cooking oil

Cooking Procedure:

1. Combine beef, soy sauce, salt, ground black pepper, cornstarch, and sesame oil. Mix all the ingredients until evenly distributed and marinade for at least 1 hour.

2. Heat a frying pan or wok and pour-in 3 tablespoons of cooking oil.

3. When the oil is hot enough, pan fry the marinated beef in medium heat until the outer part turns medium to dark brown (about 3 to 5 minutes per side).

4. Add water and simmer until the beef is tender.

5. Heat a separate pan or cooking pot then pour in the remaining 2 tablespoons of cooking oil.

6. When the oil is hot enough, sauté the garlic, onion, and ginger.

7. Add the sliced bitter gourd and stir fry for 5 minutes.

8. Turn off the heat and transfer to the pan with the tender beef. Stir and cook for 2 to 3 minutes more.

9. Transfer to a serving plate then serve.
