Meat and vegetables

  • 250g beef (tenderloin or skirt)
  • 1/2 onion
  • 1 sprig of spring onion
  • You can add more vegetables like mushrooms, carrots and peppers, to taste

The marinade

  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp golden syrup
  • Pinch of ground black pepper


  1. Mix all the marinade ingredients in a bowl, and set aside.

  2. Cut beef into slices about 3mm thick. Tip: To make thinner slices, put the beef in the freezer and wait until the outer part of the meat slightly hardens, before slicing.

  3. Marinate the beef and then mix with sliced vegetables. Leave to sit at least 2 hours before cooking.

  4. Cook the marinated beef and vegetables on a hot grill or a frying pan. Serve on a hot pan or a plate.
