The secret to a perfectly cooked beef stir-fry is placing the steak in the freezer before slicing it. That way, the meat will become nice and firm, allowing you to cut the meat into thin, even slices with ease.

  • Prep time 25 minutes
  • Total time 45 minutes
  • Portion size 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 450 g beef flank marinating steak
  • 2 tablespoons oyster sauce
  • 1 teaspoon chili garlic sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper
  • 4 cloves garlic , mined
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 onion , thinly sliced
  • 100 g shiitake mushrooms, stemmed and sliced
  • 350 g bite-size broccoli florets (about 6 cups)
  • 1 sweet red pepper , thinly sliced

Method

Place beef in freezer until firm, about 20 minutes. Thinly slice across the grain.

Meanwhile, in small bowl, whisk together oyster sauce, chili garlic sauce, half each of the salt and pepper and 1/3 cup water. Set aside.

In bowl, toss together beef, garlic, egg yolk, cornstarch and remaining salt and pepper.

In large nonstick skillet or wok, heat 1 tsp of the oil over medium-high heat; stir-fry half of the beef mixture until browned, about 3 minutes. Transfer to plate. Repeat with 1 tsp of the remaining oil and the remaining beef mixture.

In same pan, heat remaining oil over medium-high heat; stir-fry onion and mushrooms until onion is golden and mushrooms are softened, about 5 minutes. Add broccoli, red pepper and 2 tbsp water; stir-fry until broccoli is tender-crisp, about 8 minutes. Return beef and any accumulated juices to pan. Stir in oyster-sauce mixture; cook, stirring, until slightly thickened, about 1 minute.
