  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 is seriously, seriously yummy! I used pork instead of beef and marinated it for about 45 mins and it tasted delicious. I also used a red chilli and some edamame beans I had in the freezer - I'm sure you could throw anything in you needed to use up. Will definitely make again.

Delicious! I've been using this website for ages & I love it! This is the first time I've added a comment. My husband said this dish was better than a takeaway. Didn't change anything except didn't have any mushrooms!

I very rarely cook but found this really easy and very tasty. Would add a teeny bit more beef next time :-)

Delicious meal. Added spring onions and beansprouts and we all enjoyed it. Really good flavours!

Made this for dinner yesterday and it was nice. I found that it was really very salty, which may come down to the authentic hoisin I used that we brought back from China. Flavours were really lovely and will make it again but need to find the source of the extra salt.

Boyfriend loved it though and keeps demanding more!

Very tasty. served it with boiled rice and swapped mangetout and mushrooms for green beans and celery. Could add many or any different vegetables though. Other than that followed it exactly. The sesame seeds were a great addition! Will definately be making again its quick and easy!

Very tasty. Didn't have mange tout so substituted sugar snap peas which were actually fine. I also used a red pepper instead of mushrooms, and served with rice

As I don't eat beef but hubby does, was looking for a quick midweek meal for him that was healthy and where he could eat the rest the next day. I added some quick-cook egg noodles at the end and a few dried chili flakes... He absolutely loved it! this one's going in the regular recipes folder!

nice and quick way to cook beef. Works well with rice.

Aside from the fact that whoever picked my shopping thought Moroccan Tagine sauce was a good substitute for Hoisin, this was a really tasty, light meal. My other half insisted he didn't like mange tout (despite never having tasted it) and this converted him completely! Very, very tasty, easy to make and highly recommended.

I love it when the end product actually resembles the picture in the recipe. I experienced that rare sensation with this meal.
I tried it because I liked the look of it. And it tasted exactly the way I hoped it would.
Enjoyable to make and a pleasure to eat, even if I do say so myself.

Really tasty and make quite often. Don't add mushrooms but that's just personal choice and usually just becasue we don't have any kitchen.

The marinade really works well, I left it for around an hour and the meat tasted divine. I also added spring onions. Very good recipe and I will make it again.
