Beef with Oyster Sauce
Ingredients:
1 pound round beef steak, cut into thin two inch long slices, half-inch wide
2 Tablespoons soy sauce
2 Tablespoons dry red wine
1 Tablespoon cornstarch mixed with two tablespoons water
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
3 Tablespoons oyster sauce
4 Tablespoons peanut or olive oil
1 teaspoon grated ginger
1 medium carrot, thinly sliced
1 cup sliced mushrooms
1/2 pound baby spinach, chopped into large pieces
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon cayenne
Preparation:
1. Combine meat, soy sauce, wine and cornstarch and let marinate for thirty minutes.
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. Next return the beef, and add salt, pepper and cayenne and stir fry for a minute. Serve with cooked rice.
Note: Oyster sauce enriches the meat, particularly beef; and it is great with fish, too.
