Beef and Mushroom Fry

I got a stock of mushroom in the fridge that needs to be cooked before they got spoiled and I have strips of beef remaining which was also left out of the beef steak that I have cooked so I thought of why not combine the two ingredients to cook a new dish. Well I have browsed online about recipes concerning the two main ingredients but then most of the required ingredients, I don’t have it at home and I don’t want to go out for a grocery because it was really hot outside, good if we have a car.

Beef and Mushroom fry for you to try!

So to make it short, I cooked beef and mushroom fry. It does look like stir fried beef to me, although there was no sesame oil in it but I did included oyster sauce to make it look fabulous.
I do have button mushrooms so I only thought of combining it with beef and not for chicken. Anyway, it turned out just fine although this dish is dry as I have said, it is fried and don’t expect any mushy or creamy sauce into it. Here is the sample instruction on how to prepare beef and mushroom fry.
Beef (cut into thin strips)
Mushroom (what I have was button, but you can try any edible mushrooms you like)
Bird’s eye chili
Garlic (chopped)
Jeera powder
Oyster sauce
Soy sauce
Ground black pepper

Preparations/ Methods on how to cook beef and mushroom fry:

Hot and Steamy Beef and Mushroom Fry

Step 1: Put the beef strips into the pan with half a teacup of water to boil the beef. Once the water is gone, you can now put oil and fry and beef strips.

Step 2: Put chopped garlic into the beef. Cook it light brown and not burnt else the garlic will be bitter. After this, you need to put the mushroom and season it with soy sauce, a pinch of salt and ground black pepper.

Step 3: You can now add the Bird’s eye chili which is chopped and then add the oyster sauce into it as you sprinkle the jeera powder. But if you have sesame oil, the better, just exclude the jeera if you have that one.
