Step 1

Start by marinating the beef in a dish with the oil, soy, oyster sauce, MSG, garlic, ginger and green chillies – leave this for as long as possible, but half hour will suffice.

Step 2

Heat a little oil in a wok (over a high heat) and add the green peppers and half of the spring onions stir fry for a couple of minutes. Add the beef and marinade and stir fry until the beef is cooked to your liking, only a couple of minutes for me. Add the bean sprouts and mushroom, stir well and continue cooking for another minute until the vegetables have softened.

Step 3

Serve the beef on a platter, garnished with the remaining spring onion and a bowl of egg noodles on the side.

This dish is delicious washed down with an ice cold Chinese Tsingtao beer.
