Beef with Zucchini

I received some beautiful zucchini from my good friend Zue. I will usually make zucchini pancakes out of it or stir-fry it. Here is one of my favourite way of cooking it.

Ingredients :

1/2 Ib of sirloin steak
1 tsp of corn starch
1 tbsp of soy sauce
2 zucchini (yellow or green)- cut into chunks
2 shallots (quarter)
1 clove of garlic (chopped)
1 1/2 tbsp of oyster sauce (1/2 tbsp of marinate the beef)
1/2 tsp of sugar
salt and pepper to taste
1 tsp of cornstarch + 4 tbsp of water for thickening

1) Cut and marinate the beef with oyster sauce, cornstarch and soy sauce
2) Combine oyster sauce, sugar, salt & pepper, cornstarch and water and set aside
3) In a hot wok or pan put 1 tbsp of oil and stir fry the beef until is no longer pink and set aside
4) In the same pan, heat up 1 tbsp oil and stir fry shallots and garlic until fragrant
5) Add in zucchini and stir fry for two minutes
6) Return the beef to the pan and add in the sauce mixture
7) Stir fry until well combined and sauce thicken. Dish out and serve over warm rice

I like Zucchini too. Like it stir fry and pancake. Last week my neighbour gave me a zucchini bread it was nice. More of a spice bread than zucchini bread.

Zucchini taste good but it is expensive here.
And I love beef with oyster sauce too.

beachlover, I cook everyday except for Friday evening. What to do hubby suka home cooking. I will try out the Hibachi style since I still have beef.

Nonya, zucchini is one of the cheapest veggie here especially during summer. I too like it stir fry a lot.

Like Cath, I love zucchini off the grill. Never knew could stir-fry with meat. Will definitely try. Gert ... move lah to Seattle. I will make sure David's wood-working tools are available for Carlos 24/7. LOL!

I love zuccini too, but I used to stir and fry only. Thank you for the idea.

ICook4Fun said...

Rita, I like it stir-fry with meat or prawns. You ask lah David to find Carlos at job at Seattle then we move. I think Carlos have enought tools to sell. David want to buy or not ;)

Retno, Zucchini is really good isn't it

Gert, pandai you campur zucchini with beef. Good idea. Mesti sedap tu. I will try your recipe but tak ada oyster sauce lagi.
