1 Tablespoon cornstarch mixed with two tablespoons water
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
3 Tablespoons oyster sauce

1/2 pound baby spinach, chopped into large pieces
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon cayenne

2. Mix one-quarter cup water, sugar, and oyster sauce, and set aside.
3. Heat two Tablespoons oil over medium heat in a preheated wok then add ginger and stir-fry for thirty seconds, then stir in the meat with its marinade and stir-fry for four minutes or until almost cooked, then remove the beef from the wok.
4. Add remaining oil in the wok and stir-fry the carrot for two minutes over medium heat. Stir in the mushrooms and spinach, then push vegetables to the sides and add the oyster sauce mixture in the middle and bring to a boil.
