Chinese Beef Brown sauce

I remember the first time I was served this dish at a Chinese restaurant, It was sooo fascinating… What I used to do whenever I taste a food as a kid is to try and guess the ingredients or spice or flavour it had.. Sooo I decided to make me some one day, It tasted so good but I couldn’t get the exact flavour I wanted. It was missing something, probably a secret ingredient this Chinese people had, soooo I kept on trying and trying And one amazing thing I learnt is that “Practice makes perfect”. So it kept me going cause I really wanted to get it, And I finally got it, not that same one I tasted few years ago but my own typa Perfection.
