Stir-fry Beef in Oyster Sauce


I have been looking for a beef dish to try and I thought of just doing a stir-fry in oyster sauce.  I added potatoes & carrots in my recipe but you can also add other vegetables like broccoli, mushrooms or bell peppers.  The only hard part in this recipe is to make sure that the beef is cooked perfectly and is not “bubblegum-like”.


Stir-Fry Beef in Oyster Sauce

Stir-Fry Beef in Oyster Sauce


1/2 kg of beef, sliced thinly and into strips

2 tbsp oyster sauce

1 tbsp soy sauce

3 cloves of garlic, minced

1 tbsp of ginger, minced

1 medium potato, sliced into strips

1 medium carrot, sliced into strips

a dash of cayenne pepper

a dash of salt & pepper to taste

3 tbsp oil

10 pcs of hard boiled quail eggs (optional)



Combine beef, soy sauce, oyster sauce, salt & pepper.  Mix and marinate in the fridge for at least 30 mins.  Heat oil in a pan and saute ginger and garlic.  Add potatoes & carrots and cook until tender.  Set aside.  In the same pan,  saute marinated beef until the color turns brown, about 5 mins.  Add the cooked  vegetables and continue to stir-fry for about 3 mins. Add a dash of cayenne pepper for a little spice.  If it dries up or you want a little more sauce, mix 1 tbsp of soy sauce, 1 tbsp of oyster sauce & 1 tsp of sugar in a bowl and pour in the pan.  Let it simmer for about 2 mins or until you have just the right amount of sauce.

Add quail eggs before serving.
