Simple Steak or Chicken and Peppers Stir Fry
- 1 pound beef steak any cut, cut into strips or boneless, skinless chicken breast, sliced
- 1 medium onion, sliced
- 2 large peppers, green, yellow, orange or red, thinly sliced
- 1/4 cup oyster sauce
- 1 tblsp cornstarch
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp pepper
- 4 tblsp olive oil or another vegetable oil
In a cup mix oyster sauce, 1/3 cup water, cornstarch, salt, and pepper. Set aside.
In a large skillet, on medium high heat, place 2 tablespoons of oil until it is shimmering or when flicking a drop of water in it causes it to dance. Add sliced beef or chicken and sauté until browned and, if using chicken, it is no longer pink. Around 4 or 5 minutes. Remove meat and set aside.
Heat remaining 2 tablespoons of oil over medium high heat until it shimmers or a drop of water flicked in it dances as well. Add onions and stir for a few minutes until tender. Then add peppers and stir for a few more minutes until tender. Add cooked beef or chicken and oyster sauce mixture. Stir to coat and thicken sauce, just a few minutes. Serve with rice or noodles. Enjoy!
