Add the 2 tablespoons of light soy and dark soy to the meat and allow to marinate in the fridge for about 30 minutes.

Heat the wok over high heat, add half the oil. Stir- fry half the beef for about 30
seconds then remove and rest aside. Cook the remaining beef and set aside.

Reheat the wok and cook the onions, garlic, ginger and carrot for about 2 minutes, remove from the wok and set aside.

Add soy sauce, sherry and sweet chilli sauce to the wok, bring to the boil and then reduce to a simmer for 3-4 minutes until the sauce begins to thicken.

Return the meat along with meat juices and veggies and coat in sauce for a further minute.

Sprinkle chilli and sesame seeds on top.

Serve and enjoy :)
