Beef and Oyster Sauce Stir Fry

Serves 4
Time 20 minutes + marinating time


500g beef fillet steak, sliced thin


Beef marinade

1 tsp sesame oil

2 tbsp dark soy sauce

2 tbsp crispy chilli oil

1 tbsp coconut sugar

1 tbsp cornflour


3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

4 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped 

2 inches ginger, peeled and cut into matchsticks

½ brown onion, sliced

1 long red chilli, sliced 

Salt & pepper

50g snow peas

50g sugar snap peas

2 tbsp light soy sauce

½ cup oyster sauce 

1 tbsp cornflour mixed with 1-2 tbsp water to create a slurry 

1 bunch coriander, roughly chopped 

3 spring onions, sliced

1 bunch garlic chives, chopped


Coat the beef pieces in the marinade. Leave to marinate in the fridge for a minimum of 1 hour or ideally overnight.

Add oil to a hot frypan over medium-high heat. Sweat down the garlic, ginger, onion and chilli with a pinch of salt until the onions have softened and started to develop a golden colour. 

Spread the marinated beef evenly across the pan and season with salt and pepper, if you’re using a small frypan do this in batches. Sear the beef for a few minutes before adding snow peas and sugar snap peas. 

Add light soy sauce, oyster sauce and cornflour slurry stir to coat the beef pieces. Add the coriander, spring onions and garlic chives, toss through for 30 seconds to wilt before serving.
