1 pound beef eye of round, halved lengthwise and sliced crosswise 1/16 inch thick
1 cup chicken stock
2 tablespoons oyster sauce
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1 red onion, sliced 1/2 inch thick
2 yellow bell peppers, cut into 2-inch squares
1 red bell pepper, cut into 2-inch squares
1 teaspoon Chinese chili-garlic paste
1/2 teaspoon Asian sesame oil
1/4 cup coarsely chopped basil
How to Make It
In a bowl, mix the garlic, soy sauce, sherry, sugar, pepper and 1 teaspoon of the oil. Add the meat and coat well. Cover and let stand at room temperature for 2 hours or refrigerate overnight.
In a small bowl, mix the stock, oyster sauce and cornstarch. In a large skillet, heat 1/2 tablespoon of the oil. Add half of the meat and cook over high heat until browned on 1 side, about 1 minute. Transfer to a plate. Repeat with 1/2 tablespoon of the oil and the remaining meat.
Add the onion and the remaining 1 teaspoon of oil to the skillet and cook over moderate heat, stirring until softened, about 3 minutes. Add the bell peppers and cook over moderately low heat, stirring, until crisp-tender, about 6 minutes. Stir the stock mixture, then pour it into the skillet and simmer over moderate heat, stirring, until it starts to thicken, about 2 minutes. Return the meat to the skillet and simmer until heated through. Remove from the heat. Stir in the chili-garlic paste, sesame oil and basil and serve
