Meat, chips & tomatoes in the wok

Method

  • Heat a thin layer of oil in the wok and just sear the lightly seasoned steaks on both sides. Remove and set aside for a few minutes, before slicing crossways on the diagonal.
  • Add the green chillies and garlic to the wok and gently stirfry until a little coloured.
  • Then add the rice wine and cook down until almost evaporated, stirring now and again.
  • Add the fish sauce, oyster sauce and stock with the tomatoes. Stir well and cook for a few minutes until the tomatoes begin to collapse.
  • At the same time, deep fry the chips until crisp-golden and drain well.
  • Then add the sliced steak to the wok, mix well and cook to the desired degree, adding the fried chips and spring onions for the last minute or so.
