For the skewers

  • 400g rump steak, cut into 4cm strips
  • 50ml light soy sauce

  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • groundnut or vegetable oil, for griddling
  • lime wedges, to serve

  1. Soak the wooden skewers in warm water for 1 hr before you want to use them. Drop the meat into a bowl with the soy sauce and sesame oil and leave for a while, preferably 1 hr. Thread onto skewers and refrigerate until you need them. Can be done up to 1 day ahead.

  2. Heat a griddle until very hot, then sprinkle the meat with a little oil. Hang the meat-free ends of the skewers over the side of the pan so they’re easy to turn. These need to cook quick and fast, so think heat, heat and more heat. Turn them every 30 secs or so; cook for 4-5 mins in total. They should be slightly crisp outside but cooked inside.

  3. Heat the oyster sauce with the stock, then take off the heat and stir in the sliced chilli and spring onions. Spoon over the beef and serve with the lime wedges.

Never tried this with oyster sauce but it sounds absolutely amazing.

Followed the recipe to the letter and ended up with an overpowering taste of oyster sauce. Does it really need 150ml???? Surely a misprint. This was not a good start to a Valentine meal for my wife. Hugely disappointed.

Delicious. Everyone who had this devoured it and asked for the recipe. It looks really impressive too. I highly recommend it.
