  4. Make sure both your hands are oiled before shaping the beef into 6 patties.
  5. Heat up oil in a frying pan over medium heat, then add in all the cutlets, flipping the cutlets after 1- 1.5 minutes. Remove to a paper-towel lined plate when they are seared golden brown but still juicy inside.
  6. In a separate shallow pan or saucepan, heat enough oil to shallow fry the potato wedges. Remove to a paper-towel lined plate when crispy and brown.
  7. Using the same pan to fry the cutlets, add in 2 more tbs of oil. Then toss in onion rings, green peas and ginger till fragrant.
  8. Then add in the broth, soy sauce, pepper, sugar, salt, five spice powder, goji berry juice and half the soaked goji berries. Let it simmer.
