Chinese Tomato Beef w/Rice

I'm really, really craving this dish for some reason.

Just about any Chinese joint in town has some variation of this dish and could probably make it on request (if you asked nicely).

But my question is, do you have a favorite?

A pure Cantonese take?

A Hong Kong cafe style version with scrambled eggs?

Something with a sauce that is more vinegar based than ketchup based? Or perhaps one with a good soy sauce foundation? What about ones made with oyster sauce? Too sweet?

And the beef. What's your preference? The French "style" fliet mignon served at Hong Kong cafe joints, or something more traditional?

Do tell, I want to go binging on tomato beef w/rice for about a week and and want recommendations.
