Crispy Sticky Shredded Beef

The ultimate fakeaway! You can absolutely swap out the beef for chicken, but considering my waters broke whilst eating it and I started labour with my 2nd child, I'd definitely recommend!
And you can substitute the fresh garlic & ginger for 1 teaspoon of each paste if you prefer.
