  1. Mix together the soy sauce, sherry, sesame oil, garlic and ginger in a shallow dish. Add the steak and leave to marinate for about 20 minutes (or longer, if you have time).

  3. When ready to cook, heat the sunflower oil in a large frying pan or wok until hot. Add the steak with the marinade and stir fry for 3-4 minutes over a high heat until lightly browned. Remove, using a slotted spoon, on to a plate, leaving the juices in the pan.

  4. Toss the carrots in the pan and stir fry for a few minutes, then add the mangetout and cook for a further 2 minutes.

  5. Return the steak to the pan, add the mushrooms and toss everything together. Add the hoisin sauce and stir fry for a final minute. Sprinkle with the toasted sesame seeds and serve immediately.

This was fantastic!!! Absolutely loved it!! I took the advice of previous reviewers and more than doubled the ginger I used 3 cloves of garlic and chilli flakes. I did not use the sherry wine and I used baby corn cobs and broccoli and spring onions, I think you could add any veg and meat. It came out really well highly recommend!

Easy and really quick, I swaped the hoisin sauce for oyster and spring onion (blue dragon sachet) and it worked well.

Swapped the mushrooms for a pepper and sugar snap peas, used white wine instead of sherry, only marinaded the beef while I chopped the veg, and didn't have any sesame seeds, but it still tasted great.

Really enjoyed this and will certainly make again. Quick and easy to make and delivers on flavour - excellent.

Yep, I have made this a few times now and just use a tbsp of white wine instead

Has anyone tried cooking this without the sherry? I don't really want to buy a bottle just for one tbsp, unless it really makes a difference!! X

I have made this without the sherry and it was delicious- my 2 year old son eats with us so I left the alcohol out. Hope this helps.

Cooked this during the week for Hubby and I, both really enjoyed it lovely flavours the Hubster has asked for it again so must be good.

Family absolutely loved this dish. I had to make one substitute as I couldn't find hoisin sauce on its own in the supermarket so I used a few tsp's of the blue dragon stir fry sauce. Still lovely and fresh.

This was a winner with the whole family, it tastes really good! I didn't make any changes apart from I served it with rice instead of noodles and I had a little bit of left over low fat chicken korma (also on here). Will make it again, it was amazing!

Lovely. I also added red peppers and doubled the marinade. Definitely will make again.

really tasty and easy to make dinner. I can't believe something so healthy can taste so delicious. I added baby corn and red peppers but apart from that I stuck to the recipe.

Absolutely delicious. Had all the ingredients in the fridge, the only addition I made was added a bunch of spring onions with the mushrooms. Will definitely make again.

I didn't use the sherry or noodles as didn't want to include alcohol or carbohydrates, so I increased the amount of vegetables, it was great.
