Beef with ginger & spring onions

This is one of dad’s go to Chinese takeaway dishes and is very comforting and filling, I love serving this with my garlicky greens which i will be uploading later. I didn’t manage to get a picture of the dish this time around because as soon as I dished up it was gone! You can always replace the beef with chicken or even prawns. prawns wont need a marinade just make sure they are peeled and deveined.

Serves 4-6

500g beef steak (thinly sliced, I’ve used everything from quick fry steak to really good quality steak)

1 large white onion (peeled, halved then sliced into 3 cm pieces)

5 large spring onions chopped in half then into inch pieces.

1 grated garlic clove

1 tbsp freshly grated ginger (or one of the frozen blocks)

1 tbsp oyster sauce

2 tbsp soy sauce

1 tsp cornflour and sweetener (or sugar)

generous pinch black pepper and baking powder. (you wont need the baking powder if using prawns)

  1. In a sandwich bag add the sliced beef,baking powder, pepper, half the soy sauce and garlic, do the bag up and massage the beef (do the same with the chicken) leave to marinade for at least 20 minutes or at least while you chop up your veggies or cook your rice/noodles to go with it.
  2. Mix the oyster, rest of the soy, ginger, cornflour and sweetener together then heat a frying pan.
  3. Spray with non stick spray or use a little veggie oil and add the onion, stir fry for 2 minutes.
  4. Add the marinaded beef and stir fry for 2 minutes then add the sauce and stir fry until the sauce thickens.

I hope you guys enjoy this recipe, it is really quick and easy and so incredibly delicious!
