Method:

Season the beef with chopped garlic, salt and pepper.

Put a wok or a pan over very high heat. Stir in oil and cook the meat, a few slices at a time (so they do not steam and the meat browns). Cook each batch for about 2 minutes.

Add the onion, cherry tomatoes, and stir for about 2 to 3 minutes. The tomatoes and onions should be crunchy, not mushy.

Pour in soya sauce and vinegar on sides of wok or pan. Mix everything.

Add beef broth and cook for a minute-and-a-half. Taste for seasoning.

Turn off the heat, add chopped coriander and serve at once with baby potato fries and white rice.
