   Here’s a nice, non-weird, Chinese recipe for Steak Kew with
   variations for hoisin sauce, oyster sauce and hot bean paste. Combine
   beef, onion, hoisin sauce, sesame oil, soy, pepper, cornstarch,
   garlic and ginger. Let stand for 15 minutes.  Blanch snow peas,
   broccoli or asparagus for 1 to 2 minutes; drain and place on heated
   platter; keep warm. If using tomatoes, have at room temperature.
   Heat peanut oil in a wok or skillet and stir-fry meat and onion
   mixture for 1 to 2 minutes; meat should be well seared but still pink
   inside.
   
   Immediately pour over blanched vegetable and serve.  Or place on
   heated platter and surround with tomato wedges
   
   Variation with oyster sauce:  Omit hoisin sauce and sesame oil and
   add one tablespoon oyster sauce.
   
   Variation with hot bean paste:  Omit hoisin sauce and add 2 teaspoons
   hot been paste.
