Beef sauce

1 of my favorite accompaniment to go with fried rice. But it can also go well with white rice, yellow rice and even mashed potatoes.

Ingredients:

  • 2 lbs beef chucks or whole
  • 1 green pepper
  • 1 onion
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 tablespoon of cornstarch or flour
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce 
  • Spices: (lawry's,maggi,black pepper,or any seasoning of your choice)
Method:
  1. If you have a whole beef, cut it into beef chunks, wash and season your beef and
  2. On medium heat, add the tablespoon of oil , "fry" the beef and allow it to cook for about 30 - 40minutes(When the meat is softened and no longer reddish/pinkish looking then its ready)
  3. Cut the carrots, green pepper and onions into medium chunks as shown below. 
  4. Add the tablespoon spoon of flour to1 or 1/2 a cup of water(depending on how much water there was to season the beef from the start) and pour it on your beef, allow it to cook for another 15mins, then add in the oyster sauce, when the sauce begins to thicken up adjust with spices for taste and add vegetables. 
PS: Don't add the vegetables too early otherwise they would get really soft & you might not even see them in the sauce
