Serves: 4 

  • 2 (225g) sirloin steaks, sliced into thin strips
  • 2 tablespoons cornflour
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons caster sugar
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 450g mange-tout
  • 100g garden peas
  • 1 carrot, sliced
  • 2 sticks celery, sliced
  • 1 red pepper, seeded and cut into chunks
  • 4 tablespoons oil for frying

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Extra time:2hr marinating  ›  Ready in:2hr30min 

  1. Place the sliced steak in a large bowl. Sprinkle the cornflour over the beef slices and mix to coat. Whisk the soy sauce and sugar together in a small bowl until the sugar dissolves; pour over the beef slices. Mix and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours or overnight.
  2. Heat 3 tablespoons olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat; cook and stir the onion and garlic in the hot oil until tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir the oyster sauce into the onion and garlic; season with salt and pepper. Add the mange-tout, peas, carrot, celery and red pepper; cook and stir until the vegetables are slightly tender, yet still crisp, 7 to 10 minutes. Remove the frying pan from the heat.
  3. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a separate frying pan. Remove the beef from the marinade, shaking off any excess moisture; discard the marinade. Fry the beef slices in the hot oil to your desired degree of doneness, 3 to 5 minutes per side for medium. Add the cooked beef to the vegetable mixture and mix well. Serve hot.
