Step 1

Stir the soy sauce, cornstarch, salt, and sugar together in a bowl until blended. Toss the lamb slices gently in the marinade until coated. Let stand for 10 minutes.

For the Seasonings: Stir the soy sauce, hoisin sauce, hot bean paste, sesame oil and sugar together in a small bowl until the sugar is dissolved.

For the Dish: Heat a wok over high heat until hot. Add the oil and swirl to coat the sides. Add the onion, garlic and jalapeño; stir-fry until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
