This salty-sweet stir-fry offers a delightful balance of flavor and textures. Cooking the beef in batches allows it to brown properly (if it is too crowded in the pan, there will be excessive moisture that causes the beef to steam—preventing a good sear from being possible), contributing even more robust flavor to the dish.
