Steak Kew

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by MariaLuisa

This quick Cantonese dish comes from an old Playboy magazine. I think it's the hoisin sauce that makes it.

Top Review by Gary G.

Replace the hoisin sauce with oyster sauce. It the way it's supposed to be. A much deeper taste. Put the hoisin on ribs for a great taste.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Soak dried mushrooms in warm water for 30 minutes. Drain and slice, trimming off any tough bits. Set aside.
  2. In a large skillet or wok brown the steak over high heat with 1/2 tablespoon oil, 2 minutes each side. Remove the meat from the skillet and quickly slice into 1 inch cubes, retaining the meat juices. Set aside in a bowl.
  3. Add remaining oil to the skillet, and stir-fry together the dried mushrooms, garlic, gingerroot, fresh mushrooms, snow peas, water chestnuts, and bamboo shoots for 2 minutes.
  4. Add soy sauce, sherry, hoisin, and sugar and stir-fry for 1 minute.
  5. Add cubed meat and juices and stir-fry for 2 minutes.
  6. Remove and discard the garlic and ginger slices.
  7. Serve with fluffy, cooked white rice.
