Dave's Oyster Beef with Snow Peas
I haven't been doing as much experimenting in the kitchen lately (even though I always cook), so I'm sharing a few dishes that Dave and other of my family members cook. This recipe is one that Dave brought into our marriage 23 years ago. It's been a long time since he made it, and I'd forgotten how yummy it is.
1/2 lb beef tenderloin, sliced thinly and marinated for 1/2+ hours in the following:
1 Tbsp dry sherry
1 Tbsp water
1 Tbsp cornstarch
2 Tbsp soy sauce
4 Tbsp oyster sauce
1 Tbsp peanut oil
1 cup snow peas
1 cup mushrooms, sliced
1 can bamboo shoots
1 can water chesnuts
2 green onions, sliced
6 slices fresh ginger root
Combine sauce ingredients in a small bowl. Set aside.
Heat wok (or large frying pan) and add 2 Tbsp peanut oil. Stir-fry meat until almost cooked through. Remove from wok and set aside. Do not overcook.
Add 2 more Tbsp oil to wok. Stir-fry green onion and ginger until fragrant. Add remaining veggies and cook until barely tender. Return meat to wok and add sauce while stirring. Heat through. Be careful not to overcook. Serve on a bed of cooked Napa cabbage or rice.
