Method

  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).

  2. Heat a large heavy-based frying pan or wok, add the sesame seeds and toast over a high heat, stirring, for a few minutes until golden. Tip on to a plate.

  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.

Very tasty! Didn't use sherry, and used baby corn instead of carrot.

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.

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

Hi 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.

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.
