I cheated due to lack of time and did 2 microwavable special fried rice with this. I used 3 tbsp of oyster sauce (didn't tell family, cos they're suspicious!) and 1 tbspl of soy sauce. It was met with wholehearted approval, but I'll go 4 tbspl oyster next time. Will defo do again!!!

So simple and quick yet such a tasty meal. I added a few halved mangetout as I needed to use them up and they added a nice splash of colour to the dish. My rather fussy husband thought it was delicious, especially served with noodles. I will definitely make this again!!

I made this with egg fried rice (rice cooked in veg stock, garlic, prawns and peas) and added green beans to the beef as suggested by others. I however added a few gluts of oyster oil and then added some water to make a thin sauce. This worked well as the sauce went into the rice stopping it from being too dry. My fussy 'where's the sauce' boyfriend liked this

Simple, easy and delicious!! I often use with beef stir fry strips and it's just as good. Recommended!

Quick & tasty for very little effort, but you definitely need to add some vegetables if you want your 5 a day, and it won't serve 4 if you don't. I added an onion and some green pepper to the dish itself, and served with mangetout on the side. Will probably do it again.

This was delicious! I added baby aubergine and and steamed green beans and used a little more oyster sauce as it was a little dry. Wonderfully quick to make and will definitely become a regular in our house!

Made this tonight. This recipe in my opinion is for two people, not 4. Used 4 tbsp oyster sauce and a squirt of sweet chilli sauce. Used a microwave pouch of plain rice for two. Absolutely delicious meal!

So quick and easy, went down well with my fussy husband. The basil really sets it off but would have liked a bit more flavor so will probably add some soya sauce and bit of veg like sugar snap peas next time but overall loved it.
