  1. Place the sliced steak in a large bowl. Sprinkle the cornstarch over the beef slices and mix to coat. Whisk the soy sauce and sugar together in a small bowl until the sugar dissolves; pour over the beef slices. Mix and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours or overnight.
  2. Heat 3 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir the onion and garlic in the hot oil until tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir the oyster sauce into the onion and garlic; season with salt and pepper. Add the snow peas, green peas, carrot, celery, and red bell pepper; cook and stir until the vegetables are slightly tender, yet still crisp, 7 to 10 minutes. Remove the skillet from the heat.
  3. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a separate skillet. Remove the beef from the marinade, shaking off any excess moisture; discard the marinade. Fry the beef slices in the hot oil to your desired degree of doneness, 3 to 5 minutes per side for medium. Add the cooked beef to the vegetable mixture and mix well. Serve hot.

Sooo good. I think ive discovered my new favorite asian condiment... Oyster sauce! I think i added more than a table spoon cause it was a bit salty (my fault) I loved the combination of veggies, specially the peas. Looks very authentic and tastes authentic too. A keeper!!

This was a tasty meal. I did not have oyster sauce or cornstarch, but I improvised. Used flour instead of cornstarch and sprinkled in a few honey roasted nuts to give more flavor. Used the veges I had on hand and we ate great. Best part was I didn't have to go to the grocery.

I have no idea why more people have not reviewed this recipe because it is excellent! We use blade steak and it comes out very tender and is delicious with the snow peas and carrots. I do not usually have oyster sauce and omit it without any problem. I also cut down a little on the olive oil and throw in some mushrooms and water chesnuts, but it's all to taste. Thank you for an easy great meal my family loves!

This was great! I used a combo of fresh veggies (celery, red pepper, carrots) and frozen (green peas, sugar snap peas) added in a little later. I also used a top sirloin round steak in place of the NY strip and turned out great!

Delicious! My husband is Filipino, so I wanted to try this for him. He loved it! We didn't have any oyster sauce, but it tasted great without it. The steak marinade was also very flavorful. Two hours marinading really worked out great. You could just make the marinade without the rest of the stir fry and still have a delicious meat dish.

I thought this was an excellent dish. I used a little over half the meat and just eye balled the veggies. I don't think you can go wrong with this recipe!
