The beef is tender, the aromatics delightful and the oyster sauce lends an incredible sweetness to the dish. Oyster sauce is thicker and sweeter than dark soy sauce.

3 Cloves Garlic (crushed)

1 tsp Ginger (crushed)

½ cup fresh Coriander

1 small green bell pepper

3 tbsps Oyster Sauce

½ tsp Black Pepper

1 tbsp Sage

½ tsp Turmeric

2 Tomatoes (diced)


Dice up the beef and put in in a saucepan over medium heat and cover with a lid. Let it release its juices and cook in them for about 10 minutes until the juices dry out on their own.

Boiling beef

When you begin to hear the crackling sound, add vegetable oil, stir and allow to heat for one minute. Now drop in the onions and cook for about two minutes until they are soft and translucent. Add the crushed garlic and ginger and cook for thirty seconds as you stir.

Frying beef

Take half the coriander, preferably the stalks, and roll them into the pot for a further 30 seconds. As they are cooking, sprinkle in the black pepper, turmeric and sage.

After the 30 seconds for the coriander are done, pour in the oyster sauce and stir it in. At this point the aroma in the kitchen is, bewitching!
