You will need​: 

Special Equipment:

  • Skillet or wok
  • Mixing bowl


  • 2 large oil spoons
  • 300-350 grams of meat strips (striploin or rump steak can both work, or try Moomoo's ready sliced Fillet Strips)
  • 2 minced garlic cloves
  • 1/2 large red pepper

  • The sauce:
    • 6 tablespoons of Oyster Sauce
    • 2/3 tablespoons of Light Soy Sauce
    • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
    • 6-8 tablespoons water
    • Sesame oil (start with 6 large spoons of water, if the sauce is heavy at the end, add 2 more)

Recipe Instructions​

  1. Slice the meat into thin strips (incase you have a whole a piece together)
  2. For the meat to be cooked without water, the pan must be very hot, on high heat.
  3. Use a pan the right size to avoid overcrowding the pan with meat.
  4. Heat the pan with oil, then add minced garlic and stir-fry until fragrant.
  5. Add the meat and stir-fry until browned.
  6. Add the red pepper and chili peppers, and continue stir-frying for a few minutes until the vegetables are tender-crisp.
  7. In a small bowl, mix together the oyster sauce, light soy sauce, brown sugar, water, and sesame oil.
  8. Pour the sauce over the meat and vegetables, and stir-fry for another minute or two until everything is evenly coated and heated through.
  9. Remove from heat, add the basil leaves, and give it a final toss.
  10. Serve hot.
