Directions

  1. Heat canola oil in a large skillet over high heat, and cook and stir onion, garlic, and ginger just until fragrant, about 15 seconds. Add the shrimp, salt, and black pepper, and cook and stir until the shrimp is slightly pink, about 5 minutes. Stir in the beer, ketchup, and sugar, and bring the sauce to a boil.
  2. Dissolve the cornstarch in the water, and stir into the boiling sauce. Cook until the sauce returns to a boil and thickens, the shrimp are bright pink on the outside, and the meat is no longer transparent in the center, about 5 minutes. Stir in the sesame oil; remove from heat. Sprinkle with the green onions.

The cooking time was way too much. I should have followed my gut instead of the instructions, as after the 10 minutes that it calls for (5 before beer, 5 after), my shrimp were overcooked and rubbery. Also, the instructions don't say when to add the red pepper flakes. It should have been with the black pepper, but I didn't notice until the end and then it was too late for the flavor to really meld. In general, not flavorful enough and I ended up adding old bay. Disappointing for me, but at least guests had high praise.

SOOOO yummy and spicey. My husband hates spicey food but he could not stop eating these, I've made the recipe 3 times always turns out great, I didn't have fresh ginger but used the dry one and it was just fine

Relatively good but lacked some flavor. I ended up squeezing lemon over a few to try and that seemed to help. I thought the cook time on the shrimp would be too long also, (so I cooked them less) then finished in the sauce.
