This was SOOOOOO simple and tasted good. Will definately do it again. Make sure you use good steaks. We also added red pepper and used more oyster sauce. served on noodles as OH doesnt like rice. Not sure the stars are working, I give it 4/5

use good quality beef frying steak! Second time I made this I added extra chillis and doubled the oyster sauce as I found it was not spicy at all and quite dry the first time round. served with spring onions on top and rice. cheap and quick to make!

Bland - needs more flavour - more chilli, perhaps some ginger & garlic - we added soy sauce and thai sweet chilli dipping sauce to try to get some flavour into this recipe.

Read other comments about being too dry so used 3 tbsp of oyster sauce and 3 tbsp of soy sauce which seemed to be just the right amount of sauce. Added lots of veg for goodness and was really delicious!

great and very easy use more sauce though and add sweet chilli if you desire although not needed great with mushroom added. what really goes well with this dish is the stir fried noodle recipe thats on this site.

This wasn't to our liking, it didn't have any one distinctive flavour maybe the oyster sauce fancied a night off but it simply wasn't flavoursome enough. I will not be doing this again without some significant additions!
