I have been tasked to make dinner for my mom tonight. I have been racking my brain for some sort of recipe that my mom would like to eat. She shot down pasta dishes, cream sauces, and any American-style of food. The only thing she told me was to use the mushrooms in the refrigerator. So I figured out a stir fry beef dish to go with it.
Here are the ingredients needed for this recipe:
- 1-1/2 lb. flank steak, thinly sliced strips ( I will be using 1/4 lb)
- 4 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 tsp. fresh ginger, minced
- 4 Tbsp. oyster sauce
- 4 Tbsp. soy sauce
- 2 tsp. sugar
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
- 4 tsp. cornstarch
- 1 cup water
- 2 Tbsp. sake (optional)
- 2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
- 1 cup fresh mushrooms, thinly sliced (I will be using 5 cups)
- 1/2 onion, thinly sliced
Step 1: In a medium bowl combine the garlic, ginger, oyster sauce, soy sauce, sugar, salt, pepper, water, sake, and cornstarch. Mix well.
Step 2: Add flank steak and marinade for at least 30 minutes.
Step 3: Heat a large saucepan or wok over medium high heat.
Step 4: Add oil.
Step 5: Remove steak slices from the marinade with a slotted spoon or tongs, reserve the marinade, and place into the pan and stir fry until the steak is fully cooked, about 2-3 minutes.
Step 6: Remove from the pan; set aside.
Step 7: Add a little more oil to the pan if necessary and add mushrooms and onion.
Step 8: Stir fry for 3-4 minutes.
Step 9: Add the marinade liquid to the pan and bring to a boil.
Step 10: Reduce heat and simmer for 30 seconds.
Step 11: Return steak to the pan and simmer until heated through.
