Ingredients

  • 1 tsp cornflour
  • 2 tbsp dark soy sauce
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp rice wine or sherry
  • 450g beef strips
  • 2 Tbsp sunflower oil
  • 1 red pepper, finely sliced
  • 1 yellow pepper, finely sliced
  • 4 scallions, trimmed and thinly sliced
  • 100g mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 tbsp root ginger, grated
  • 1 pak choy, cut on the diagonal into strips
  • 2-3 tbsp black bean sauce (from sachet or jar)
  • salt and pepper

Instructions

  1. Place the cornflour in a bowl then stir in the soy sauce, sesame oil and rice wine or sherry, until smooth. Add the beef strips, stirring to combine and set aside for 10 minutes, or up to 24 hours in the fridge, covered with clingfilm.
  2. Heat a wok over a high heat until smoking hot and then add half of the oil and swirl up the sides. Add half the beef and cook for 2-3 minutes until just tender and lightly golden. Tip on to a plate and keep warm. Repeat with the remaining beef strips.
  3. Quickly wipe out the wok with kitchen paper and add the rest of the oil. Add the peppers and stir-fry for 1-2 minutes. Reserve a tablespoon of the scallions to garnish then add the remainder to the wok along with the mushrooms, pak choy and ginger.
  4. Then sprinkle over a tablespoon of water and continue to stir-fry for another minute, until the water has evaporated and the vegetables are just tender.
  5. Add the beef back in and stir in the black bean sauce. Once it is heated through, season to taste. Serve on warmed plates with the fine egg noodles and sprinkle on the reserved scallions.
