Serves 4:

2 tablespoons of sunflower or peanutoil

400grams think steak “ribbons”

1 red pepper

2 tablespoons of oystersauce

Handful of basil leaves

1 clove of garlic

100grams rice

200grams of (frozen) peas




Bring salted water with the rice to the boil, when the water is boiling add the peas and bring back to the boil until rice and peas are cooked, drain and cover, set aside.


Meanwhile cut the steaks into thin strips, dice the pepper and the garlic finely.


Heat oil in a wok, add the garlic and pepper en stir to colour (not burn) then add the steak, just to turn colour.


Add the oystersauce and let thicken slightly..

Serve the meat with the rice, decorate with the basil



I find oystersauce quite salty so I don;t add any additional salt to the meat, but if you like, please go ahead 😉
