  • 225 grams beef (thinly sliced)
  • 1 teaspoon Shaoxing wine

  • 75 grams scallions (2-3 sliced diagonally)


  • Put the beef in a bowl along with the 1 teaspoon of shaoxing, the oyster sauce and potato starch. Stir to evenly coat the beef and let it marinate while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.
