indian-chinese food: mystery dish!

I'm trying to track down a recipe for a dish I used to eat regularly like 18 years ago when I spent some time in India. I'm pretty sure it was Indian-Chinese style food. It was some kind of beef stir-fried with peppers, but the beef was very dry, almost stringy. There wasn't really a sauce-- the dish was very dry overall. Doesn't sound that tasty but as far as I can remember it was delicious. I'd love to make it again but all the recipes I come across seem to be for a much saucier dish-- more the consistency of curry. Which is not what I'm after at all. Does anyone know what I'm talking about? Recipes or even techniques would be greatly appreciated...
