- 2 tbsp oyster sauce
- 2 tbsp soy sauce
- 2 tbsp dry sherry or Chinese rice wine
- 1 tbsp soft brown sugar
- 2 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 1/2 lb rump steak, cut into slices against the grain
- 1 heaping tbsp cornstarch seasoned with 1/4 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 2 mushrooms, sliced
- 1 red bell pepper, deseed and sliced
- 1 cup snow peas
- 2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
- 1 thumb-sized piece ginger, peeled and minced
- 1 cup mung bean sprouts
- Small bunch scallions, sliced
- Mix the ingredients for the sauce in a small bowl and put to one side.
- Heat the oil in a wok or a large frying pan until very hot. Dredge the steak slices in the seasoned cornstarch then carefully place them into the hot oil (it will spit, so watch out)
- Fry for 5-6 minutes, moving around the wok a few times, until the steak is well seared, then remove from the pan and place in a bowl to rest.
- Discard all but 2 tbsp of the oil and fry the mushrooms, bell pepper, snow peas, garlic and ginger for 2-3 minutes on a medium heat.
- Turn the heat up high and pour in the sauce. Bring to the boil and then simmer it for a 2-3 minutes until it reduces slightly. Add in the cooked steak and mung bean sprouts and cook for a further 2-3 minutes until the mung bean sprouts are heated through, but still crunchy.
- Serve topped with sliced scallions, either on it’s own or with rice or noodles.
