       Title: QUICK-FRIED BEEF WITH OYSTER SAUCE
  Categories: Beef, Chinese
       Yield: 6 Servings
  
       1 lb Beef steak
     1/2 ts Salt
   3 1/2 tb Vegetable oil
       1 tb Soy sauce
       2 ts Cornstarch
       2 tb Water
       2 tb Sherry
       4 tb Beef stock
       2 sl Ginger root
   2 1/2 tb Oyster sauce
     3/4 ts Sugar
            Pepper -- to taste
  
   Cut the beef into small thin slices and rub these with the salt and
   1/2 tablespoon of oil.  Mix the soy sauce, cornstarch, water, sherry
   and stock in a bowl until well blended. Finely chop the ginger. Heat
   the oil in a frying pan. When hot add the beef, spreading the pieces
   out, and stir-fry them over a high heat for 1 minute. Add the ginger,
   followed by the oyster sauce and sugar, and continue to stir-fry for
   30 seconds. Pour in the sauce mixture from the bowl, and continue to
   stir-fry over a high heat for a further minute.  Serve immediately on
   a well-heated dish.
   
   This mixture of seafood flavor with meat is a common Cantonese
   practice which most southerners enjoy, but which is not always
   accepted in central and north China.
