Ginger Beef, as we know it in these parts, is actually an Alberta-made invention by early Chinese restauranteurs in the province. I visited a museum in Stony Plain recently, and the feature exhibit was about Chinese restaurants in Alberta - it was quite enlightening. Urban China's serving of Ginger Beef was reasonably large, crispy, and had the right amount of kick. There was nothing not to like about it. I happened to be craving Chinese food at that moment, so it hit the spot.
