The beef stir fry recipes are very popular among home kitchens since almost everyone loves beef as their main protein.  Beef as a main course for dinner somehow satisfies that hungry feeling and feels that empty stomach with just the right level of fullness.  This also goes well also for beer drinkers who enjoy their stir fry while drinking their beers at home.  Let us get started then.

THE BEEF, OYSTER MUSHROOM AND BROCCOLINI STIR FRY:  This is a great and very vibrant and healthy meal prepared in just half an hour.  The original recipe can serve 4 persons, prepared and cooked in just about 35 minutes.  This dish is considered to be super simple and one can easily adapt to its procedure.

  • 450 grams of Hokkein noodles
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh gingerroot
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
  • 350 grams of beef fillet steak, or tenderloin steak, cut into thin slices like strips
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil or as required
  • A bunch of broccolini, already cut into 3 lengths from its stalks
  • 1 red capsicum, deseeded and sliced into strips
  • 150 grams cut into halves of oyster mushrooms
  • ¼ cup or 60 ml oyster sauce
  • 1 tablespoon dark soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon kecap manis (the Indonesian sweet soy sauce)

  • Prepare the hokkien noodles first.  Place them in a heat proof bowl and pour boiling water just enough to cover them.  Cover the bowl and set aside for about 5 minutes to give time for the hot water to separate the noodles.  Then drain the water and set the noodles aside for stir frying.
  • In a bowl, combine the beef with the ginger and the garlic and the 1 ½ tablespoons of olive oil.  Coat the beef well.  
  • Let us now start stir frying.  Heat a wok or a large skillet over high heat on your American stove.  Add a tablespoon of oil to the wok and swirl to coat its sides.  Once the oil is hot, maintain the heat by stir frying the beef in batches and cook them for 1 minute on each side or until they are golden brown.  Repeat this procedure in batches until fully done.  Transfer the beef to a plate and set aside.
  • Add the remaining oil to the wok or the large skillet.  Then you can add the broccolini and the capsicum and stir fry them for 2 minutes.  Followed by the mushrooms and continue stir frying for another 60 seconds.    Make sure they are fully combined together.   
  • Finally, it is time to add the Hokkein noodles and the beef to the wok with the oyster sauce and the soy sauce and the kecap manis sauce, and continue stir frying until done for 3 to 5 minutes more.   
  • Taste test the dish and you can salt and pepper to taste.  
  • Serve immediately while they are hot over steam cooked white rice.
