    Beef stir fried with lotus root is a classic Chinese dish, best served with lots of white rice. If you can't find fresh lotus roots, you can substitute with canned.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 4 

    • 1/2 tablespoon sugar
    • 1/2 tablespoon light soy sauce or 1 tablespoon dark soy sauce
    • 1 tablespoons cornflour, mixed with 1 tablespoon water
    • 450g beef steak, thinly sliced
    • 2 tablespoons oil, divided
    • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
    • 3 small lotus roots, peeled and sliced
    • 10 small dried black wood ear mushrooms, soaked and sliced
    • hot water, as needed
    • oyster sauce, to taste

    Directions
    Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Extra time:15min marinating  ›  Ready in:50min 

    1. Make the marinade by mixing together the sugar, soy sauce and cornflour slurry. Mix in the beef, allow to marinate for 15 minutes.
    2. Heat a large frying pan with 1 tablespoon oil. Stir fry the garlic until aromatic, 2-3 minutes. Add the beef, stir fry until nearly done, about 3-4 minutes, set aside.
    3. Heat the same frying pan with 1 tablespoon oil. Stir fry the lotus root for 2-3 minutes or until lightly browned. Add the wood ear mushrooms and just enough hot water to half cover the ingredients. Cover the frying pan and simmer for 3-5 minutes. Continue to simmer until there is very little liquid let, about 3-5 minutes.
    4. Add the beef back into the pan and mix well. Stir in the oyster sauce to taste and serve.
