[Korean Recipes] Beef and Cucumber Stir-Fry

I made a simple beef and cucumber stir-fry the other day. I seasoned the thin beef slices with Korean flavored sauce, then stir-fried with cucumbers and some red chillies. In order to maintain the crunch texture of cucumber, toss with salt for a few minutes before you add to the stir-frying. That will extract some moisture out of cucumbers and help retain its crispness.
