- Heat about 2" of oil to hot but not smoking. With tongs, remove a piece of beef from the batter ; it should be well coated; and fry a total of about 5 minutes til medium brown , turning over as needed. Remove to doubled paper towel- covered newspaper. Cut into the trial fried piece to make sure the beef and batter are cooked through.Adjusting temp as needed, finish frying the rest.
