Spicy Beef Filet in Oyster Sauce

IrvineHousewife

"My good friend Lin gave me a recipe for beef in oyster sauce, I misread the amount of black pepper called for in her recipe, and the result was fantastic! I especially like the recipe because no soy sauce is used. My husband likes to eat them with the leftover sliced uncooked onion to bring out the sweetness of the oyster sauce."

Instead of vegetable oil, I soaked my beef strips in 1 tablespoon cooking white wine, 1 tablespoon cornstarch. I added the oyster sauce last just before turning off the stove. Serve it over rice.

I like this recipe, but agree with the other reviewer who said that the black pepper overwhelms the dish. Oyster sauce is a rather delicate flavor. I will cut back the pepper to 1/4 teaspoon n...

This recipe is a pretty standard beef stir-fry. I cooked it in a wok, and added a package of stir-fry vegetables. I served it over white rice.

Loved how spicy it was and put more water to it at the end because we loved the sauce. The sugar made a huge difference, it was so tasteful.
