- ½ lb finely sliced beef, I used shabu shabu boneless ribeye
- 2 or 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
- 1 leek sliced diagonally
- ½ tablespoon olive oil
- 2 tablespoon oyster sauce
- ½ tablespoon corn starch
- Salt and pepper to taste
In a medium bowl place the beef, garlic, oyster sauce, salt and pepper, mix gently. Add corn starch and make sure that the beef is lightly coated with it.
In a fry pan or wok, add the olive oil and sauté the beef until all cooked and slightly brown. Remove from the pan and set aside.
On the same pan add the leek and sauté for a minute until slightly soft.
Add the beef back to the pan and mix together with the leek.
Serve hot with rice.
Did you know that leek belong to the same family as garlic and onions? Therefore leek contain many of the same beneficial compounds present in garlic and onion such as flavonoids (known to protect blood vessels) and B vitamin (lower homocysteine supporting cardiovascular health).
