How to Use up Your Fruit and Vegetables


Combine all the marinade ingredients in a bowl with the beef slices and toss to coat them evenly. Cover and set aside to marinate for 30 minutes or longer if you have time.

To make the dipping sauce, dissolve the sugar and salt in the lime juice, add the remaining ingredients and set aside.

Place a wok over a high heat and, when it’s hot, add the oil, sugar, garlic and pepper. Stir for 1 minute until the mixture has caramelised, taking care not to burn the garlic and pepper.

Drain the marinade from the beef and add the slices to the wok. Stir-fry for 2 minutes. Add the oyster sauce and stir-fry for 2 minutes, or until it is cooked to your taste. Serve wrapped in lettuce leaves, if desired, alongside the dipping sauce.
