Beef in Oyster Sauce

It is almost noon and you don’t have any idea on what to cook for lunch yet. If you are in this situation, thinking of a quick and easy recipe is what you’ll probably do. Worry no more; I have an easy and quick solution for your problem: it is called Beef in Oyster Sauce.

This simple and quick beef recipe will definitely make you serve a decent meal in the table right before lunch or dinner time. Imagine being able to prepare a great tasting dish with minimal time and effort; this gives you more time to do other things while ensuring that lunch or dinner has been taken care of.

Aside from being quick and easy to prepare, I like the aroma and taste of this dish. You can serve me this meal for three days in a row and I won’t get tired of it. One more thing, I added spinach in this recipe. This is to remind me that I still need to have my vegetables. Instead of serving the spinach in a separate plate, it is better to mix it with the beef so that it doesn’t get ignored.

    i dont have spinach here, can i use bok choy instead?

  4. hello, i’ve learned so much from your website… and I’ve been getting compliments from the food i’ve been cooking thanks to you. just a question about this recipe, can i substitute the spinach with broccoli or other vegetables? i have an aversion with spinach e =)

    • Emily Lumagui says:

      I love spinach but I have been known to use chopped cabbage and /or broccoli. I stir fry the chopped cabbage with onion and garlic similar to the spinach to my liking. Remove from heat to a waiting plate and then fry the meat in the same pan. Once the meat is cooked I toss in the substitute veggies in with meat and stir fry for a minute or so. My kids love it!
