Chinese Beef with Mushrooms
11/2 lb flank steak, sliced into thin strips
4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
4 T. oyster sauce
4 T. soy sauce
2 t. sugar
1 t. salt
1/2 t. Ground Black pepper
4 t. cornstarch
1 c. water
2 T. Oil
1 c. Fresh mushrooms, sliced
Step 1: In a large bowl combine garlic, oyster sauce, soy sauce, sugar, salt, pepper, water and cornstarch. Mix well. Add flank steak and marinate for 30 minutes.
Step 2: Heat a wok or fry pan to medium high heat. Add oil. Remove Steak slices from the marinade with a slotted spoon (reserving the marinade) and place into the pan and stir fry until the steak is fully cooked (about 5 minutes). Remove from the pan and set aside.
Step 3: Add a little more oil to the wok if necessary and add mushroom slices. Stir fry mushrooms for 3 minutes or until tender. Add the marinade liquid to the wok, bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 30 seconds. Return steak to the pan and simmer until heated through.
