Stir fried Chinese beef and peas - quick and easy! This is from "A Hundred Years of Island Cooking", an old cookbook from the Hawaiian Electric Company.
- 1 1⁄2 lbs beef, thinly sliced
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 teaspoon soy sauce
- 2 teaspoons sherry wine
- 1⁄4 cup oyster sauce
- 2 tablespoons oil
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1⁄2 cup thinly sliced onion
- 1 cup snow peas
- Combine beef, cornstarch, sugar, soy sauce, sherry, oyster sauce and 1 tablespoon of the oil; marinate for 20 minutes.
- In a wok or skillet, heat remaining oil and brown garlic. Add meat and onion; stir-fry 1 minute. Add peas and cook 1 more minute.
This was pretty good. I used beef broth in place of the sherry. I had the butcher slice my meat and I think it was still too thick because it came out a little chewy. I tried my best to not over or under cook it though. I'll probably try this again with chicken.
I made this as a quick dinner last night. I served it over Ramen noodles and the sauce was excellent with them! I did alter the recipe slightly by omitting the sherry wine and adding in extra peas since we love them! Thanks for the great recipe!
