Ingredients

  • 450g lean beef steak
  • 1 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp Shaoxing rice wine or dry Sherry
  • 2 tsp cornflour
  • 3 tbsp groundnut oil
  • 1 red pepper, cut into chunky dice
  • 1 green pepper, cut into chunky dice
  • 3 tbsp oyster sauce
  • 2 spring onions, finely shredded, to garnish

Method

  • STEP 1

    Cut the beef into slices 5cm long and 5mm thick, cutting against the grain of the meat. Put them in a bowl. Mix in the soy sauce, sesame oil, rice wine or Sherry and cornflour. Leave to marinate for 20 mins.

  • STEP 2

    Heat a wok until it is very hot, then add the groundnut oil. When it is slightly smoking, add the beef slices and stir-fry for 5 mins or until lightly browned. Remove the meat from the wok and drain well in a colander set inside a bowl. Discard the drained oil.

  • STEP 3

    Wipe the wok clean and reheat it over a high heat. Add the peppers, and cook for 3-4 mins or until softened. Add the oyster sauce and bring it to a simmer. Return the drained beef slices to the wok and toss them thoroughly with the oyster sauce. Turn the mixture on to a serving platter, top with the spring onions and serve immediately.
