Marinated Beef Steaks with Garlic Recipe

Ingredients :

    • 500 g (1 lb) beef sirloin or flank steak
    • 2 tablespoons oil
    • 3 cloves garlic, minced

Marinade :

    • 2 tablespoons oil
    • 3 cloves garlic, minced
    • 2 tablespoons sugar
    • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
    • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
    • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1/teaspoon ground
    • black pepper

Accompaniments :

    • 1 red onion, cut in half and thinly sliced
    • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
    • 1 bunch watercress, washed and tough stems removed
    • 200 g (1 cup) diced fresh pineapple (optional)
    • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
    • 2 teaspoons oil
    • 1 teaspoon sugar
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt and ground pepper mix

Method :

    1. Slice the beef across the grain as thinly as possible. In a mixing bowl, combine the beef with all the Marinade ingredients and mix well. Allow the beef to marinate at room temperature for at least 30 minutes or in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
    2. Prepare the Accompaniments 10 minutes before serving. Toss together the onion and vinegar in a mixing bowl and set aside for at least 5 minutes. Toss in the rest of the ingredients and mix well.
    3. Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a wok or skillet over high heat until almost smoking. Add the garlic and stir-fry until light brown and fragrant, about 1 minute.
    4. Add the beef in a single layer around the pan’s surface and leave them to fry undisturbed, until seared on one side, about 2–3 minutes. Flip the beef over with a spatula and sear the other side, about 2 more minutes. Stir the beef to combine well and cook for another 2–3 minutes for medium.
    5. To serve, arrange the beef on top of the Accompaniments on a serving platter.
