Let’s Make It!

  • Start by thinly slicing 500g of rump steak.
  • Take a medium-sized bowl and create a marinade consisting of 2 tablespoons soy sauce, 1 tablespoon of grated ginger, and 2 crushed cloves of garlic.
  • Add the steak to the bowl, ensuring each piece is coated well in the marinade. Set aside and allow the steak to marinate for 15 minutes.
  • Rinse and drain a 400g can of black beans while waiting for the steak.
  • Preheat a large wok or frying pan over high heat.
  • Add a dash of vegetable oil to the heated pan, swirling it around to evenly coat the surface.
  • Toss in the marinated beef, cooking until browned and slightly crispy.
  • Once the beef is cooked to your liking, remove it from the pan and set it aside.
  • In the same pan, add a bit of oil again if you need, then throw in a finely chopped onion, stir-frying until it is slightly translucent with a golden brown edge.
  • Toss in your rinsed and drained black beans, along with a red and green bell pepper, both julienned.
  • Continue to stir-fry the veggies until they are slightly tender but still crunchy.
  • Return the cooked beef to the pan and stir well to mix with the beans and veggies.
  • Drizzle in a sauce made of 2 tablespoons oyster sauce, 1 tablespoon cornstarch, and 1/2 cup of beef broth. Stir everything together and let it simmer for a minute until the sauce thickens slightly.
  • Serve your Beef and Black Bean Stir-fry over a plate of steamed jasmine rice mat and sprinkle with some freshly chopped spring onion!
  • Enjoy this quick, simple, and flavorful dish!

That Was Quick!
