  • 3 tbsp hoisin sauce

  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.

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!

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.
