One thing I liked about Chinese stir fry dishes is that it is so simple to prepare and most of them are ready in 15 minutes or less. Stir fries also lets you become creative in your own kitchen in the easiest way as you can almost create any meat and vegetable combination you want and it can be a different meal each time.


  • 500g beef tenderloin, sliced into strips
  • 2 bunches asparagus, sliced (use top 2/3 part)
  • 1 white onion, sliced
  • 2 tsp minced ginger
  • 3 tbsp oyster sauce
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 6 tbsp Chinese cooking wine
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • peanut oil
  • toasted sesame seeds, to garnish


  1. Marinate beef strips in salt, freshly ground black pepper, sesame oil and 2 tbsp of Chinese cooking wine for at least 15 minutes.
  2. Add cornstarch in beef mixture then mix evenly.
