Rainbow Beef Stir-Fry

Serves: 4
Prep: 10 mins
Cook: 5 mins

What you need:
  • 8 oz. (230g) flank steak, sliced into 2-inch strips
  • 1 ½ tsp. cornflour
  • 1 tbsp. + 1 tsp. rice wine
  • 1 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp. cold water
  • 1 tsp. sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp. hoisin sauce
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. ginger, minced
  • ½ tsp. chili flakes
  • 8 oz. (230g) shiitake mushrooms, chopped
  • 3 bell peppers, mixed colors, chopped
  • 1 tsp. cold water

What to do:

To slice the flank steak it is really important to cut the steak into really thin slices, cutting across the grain of the meat. Prepared like this will ensure a really tender piece of meat.

Place the sliced steak into a medium bowl and coat with the cornflour, 1 teaspoon of rice wine, soy sauce, minced garlic, cold water, sesame oil, and season to taste with salt and pepper.

In a small bowl, mix the remaining rice wine and hoisin sauce, then set aside.

Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a wok over high heat and add the beef in a single layer. Let the beef cook for 1 minute, then stir fry for another 1 minute. Transfer the beef to a plate.

Add in the remaining oil, add the garlic, ginger and chili flakes and stir-fry for about 10 seconds. Next add the mushrooms and peppers, season to taste with salt and stir-fry for 2 minutes. 

Return the beef to the wok, along with the resting juices. Finally, add the hoisin sauce mixture and stir-fry for another 1 minute, until cooked through. 

Remove from the heat and serve immediately with 
rice or rice noodles.
