Recipe from What’s Cookin, Chicago?

I love stir fries.  A one-pot meal that usually comes together in under 30 minutes!  You can’t really beat that. 🙂

Ingredients:
1 lb lean beef, sliced thin
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 T garlic powder
1 T onion powder
2 T cornstarch
1 onion, diced
3-4 cloves garlic, minced
8 ou sliced mushrooms
2-3 T oyster sauce
2-3 T soy sauce
1/4 c water
3-4 green onions, sliced into 1″ pieces

Directions:
Season sliced beef with salt, pepper, garlic and onion powder.  Toss to coat with cornstarch then side aside.

Add oil to a hot wok, then add garlic and onion and saute until softened.  Mix in the mushrooms and cook until slightly carmelized.

Once mushrooms have started to carmelize, add beef and brown.
(NOTE: If I were to make this again, I would brown my beef before adding anything else, except for oil, to the wok.  With everything in there it made it a bit difficult to get it nicely browned.  I would then remove it for the previous steps, and add it back in at this point.)

Add oyster sauce, soy sauce and water and mix well.  Allow it to come to a boil, scraping up cooked bits from pan.  Reduce liquid by half.  Just before serving, add green onions and toss.  Serve over rice if desired.
