Chinese Oyster Beef with Mushrooms (Best Ever)

I have always loved oyster sauce beef the delicious flavour of oyster sauce and soya sauce is always a winner. But it seems that finding the perfect recipe is not so easy. I wanted something that was bursting with flavour and found it with this recipe.

How did the family love it?

The kids have been eating my stock of oyster beef for the last three days now. They are still not tired of it. So I had one large portion left for the weekend, I thought. I don't know if you notice the same thing I do, but aren't kids always hungry during the weekends?

Then my husband came home last night and was hungry. As he was putting together his sandwich he took a bite of the oyster beef. Suffice to say, sandwich was abandoned and there is no longer a weekend stock for oyster beef. That fantastic huh? Yup. Let me share it with you I have made some changes with the addition of sliced onion rings and dark soya sauce for colouring.

Step 2: Heat a wok or fry pan to medium high heat. Add oil. Remove steak slices from the marinade with a slotted spoon (reserving the marinade) and place into the pan and stir fry until the steak is fully cooked (about 5 minutes). Remove from the pan and set aside.

Step 3: Add a little more oil to the wok if necessary and add sliced onions and fry till softened, add in the mushroom slices. Stir fry onion and mushrooms for 3 minutes.
