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.

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.

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 :-)
