Beef with Oyster Sauce

More quick and simple meals….

Less talking, more cooking:

8 oz. beef (I used top round)
1 scallion (chopped)
2 slices of ginger (shredded)
1 egg (white only)
2 tsp corn starch
2 tbsp water

2 tbsp oyster sauce

1tbsp rice wine (shaoxing)
1 tbsp light soy sauce
1 tsp mushroom soy sauce
pinch of salt
pinch of white pepper

Cut beef across grain into very thin slices, then cut into small squares. Beat egg white and mix thoroughly with beef. Mix marinade ingredients and add to beef and egg white. Mix and let stand for 20 minutes. Mix together corn starch and water and set aside.

Heat a few tablespoons of oil in a wok over high heat. Drain beef, reserving marinade and quickly stir fry, just until the color changes. Remove the beef from the wok and set aside. Add the scallion and ginger and stir fry for about 1 minute (keep it moving in the pan). Return beef to the wok and add reserved marinade and corn starch solution. Cook over high heat until thickened.

Serve with steamed white (jasmine) rice.
