Something I made up with an interesting texture. The best thing is it has plenty of flavour without a long marinade time!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a plastic bag, place the beef, chilli powder, paprika, cornmeal, corn starch, soy sauce and garlic. Mix to evenly coat the beef. Set aside.
  2. Heat the oil in the wok on high. When hot (flick a drop of water at it. If it sizzles, it's hot enough), carefully empty the plastic bag contents into it. Add the water. Stir-fry for about 7-10 minutes, ensuring beef is evenly browned. If the beef starts to stick, add mroe water, but NOT TOO MUCH or it will be very watery indeed.
  3. Add the oyster sauce. Stir-fry for 30 sec.
  4. Add the butter. Stir-fry until melted and evenly distributed amongst the beef.
  5. Serve hot with steamed rice.
