Nua Nam Mun Hoi (Beef in oyster sauce)


I have a lot of mushrooms in my fridge. Let's make this quick dish and serve with a hot bowl of rice for lunch !;).

I like to marinate the beef in a little bit of water, a pinch of topioca flour, pepper and soy sauce. It makes the meat more tender that way.

All you need is :
Beef cut into strips, bite size and marinate (like above)
Chopped garlic, onion, green onion and mushrooms (desired amount) see pictures

Sauce :
1 tbs of oyster sauce, 1 tbs of soy sauce/fish sauce, 2 tsp of sugar and a pich of pepper

Mix the sauce in a cup, That way you will not miss anything during the stir-fry process. It needs to be quick and the temperature of the oil must be really hot before you put anything into the wok/pan.

Heat 1 tbs of oil in the wok/pan, you can see a little smoke from the surface or feel the heat above the wok with your hand. It means that the oil is hot enough and ready now.

Add the following > garlic > meat > onion and the rest. Add the sauce, and if necessary, add some water to keep it from burning during the process. When everything is fully cooked,then it's done! :)
Serve with jasmine rice :).
