Beef in Oyster Sauce in het Nederlands
Beef in oystersauce
1 pound beef flank steak, sliced.
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon dry sherry
1 tablespoon dark soy sauce
2 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons canola, corn, or peanut oil
1 large onion, peeled and quartered
2 slices unpeeled gingerroot, 1 X 1/8 inch each
2 garlic cloves, crushed and peeled
1/4 cup water
4 tablespoons oyster sauce
1. Place the beef in a bowl, stir the cornstarch, sherry, soy sauce, and sugar, and mix well. Set aside.
2. Heat the oil in a wok or stir-fry pan over high heat until hot but not smoking. Test by dipping the tip of a spatula in the beef mixture and then into the oil; it should sizzle. Add the onion, gingerroot, and garlic. Stir constantly for 1 minute. Do not brown.
3. Stir up the beef mixture again and pour it into the pan. Stir briskly for about 2 minutes, or until the beef is almost done. Add the water and oyster sauce and stir over high heat for 1 minute or less, or until the beef is cooked and the ingredients are well mixed and heated through. Discard the gingerroot and garlic, if desired. Serve immediately.
