INGREDIENTS

start of by preparing your beef marinade

Marinade Ingredients

300g lean beef steak

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon sugar

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

1 tablespoon cornstarch

1 tablespoon rice wine

1 tablespoon chopped ginger

Stir-fry Ingredients

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

2 cloves minced garlic

2 tablespoons chopped ginger

2 tablespoons oyster sauce

1/2 red bell pepper

1/2 yellow bell pepper

2 medium sized broccoli

DIRECTIONS

Start by blanching your broccoli in hot salty water for 1 to 2 minutes

Introduce 1 tablespoon vegetable oil into a ‘wok’,if you don’t own one like me,your nonstick pan will do just fine.

Add in your ginger and garlic and stir until fragrant

Go ahead and add in your beef,ensuring that they all have contact with the pan in order to brown evenly and avoid boiling

keep stirring until evenly browned

Introduce your vegetables and oyster sauce and mix well together

Mix two teaspoons cornstarch with 1/4 cup water and pour into the pan.

Mix well until thick and consistent then serve hot.
