My kids and their nanny went to my brother's house and so it's just me and hubby and in as much as I love hubby so much, I couldn't cook as flamboyant as I want to since today is one of those days that I'm down with a really bad flu. Mind you, I rarely have flu. Twice a year is my quota, knock on wood.
I'm so happy with how I managed to cook this dish that though can't taste much, I eat a lot!
This dish is so simple, it's a matter of cooking the beef tender and having the sauce balance.
500 grams beef rib-eye
1 tablespoon lemon
2 tablespoons olive oil
knob of butter
1 medium size green capsicum / bell pepper, cut in strips
1 medium white onion, sliced
1/2 cup oyster sauce
3/4 cup to 1 cup water
Mushroom slices, optional
Massage the beef with tenderiser powder, cover with cling film and pound slightly. Slice into strips and squeeze about a tablespoon of lemon juice. Toss to make sure that all the pieces are well marinated. Set it aside for 15 minutes. This process will help tenderize your beef completely.
Heat olive oil with a tablespoon of butter in a frying pan over high heat. Add onions. Once onions are soft, add beef strips. Stir after 30 seconds and let it simmer for 2 minutes.
Set the meat aside in a serving bowl along with onions and bell pepper. Simmer the sauce in the pan for another 3 minutes.
Pour the sauce on meat and serve. Enjoy!
