Stir-Fried Beef with Oyster Sauce

Marinated slices of beef flank steak is stir-fried with the classic oyster sauce along with a unique savory char and smoky aroma from the wok. As a savory sauce, Oyster sauce (háo yóu, 蚝油) or “ho yeow” in Cantonese dialect, is commonly used in Chinese cooking. Traditionally, it was used mostly in Cantonese cooking and southern Chinese cuisine due to the proximity of the fertile oyster beds off the coast of Guangdong and Hong Kong.
