  • Ingredients:
  • Beef Marinade
  • 1.5 lbs beef sirloin (or any cut you like) cut into 1″ cubes
  • 2 tbs minced garlic
  • 1.5 tbs sugar
  • 2 tbs oyster sauce
  • 1 tbs fish sauce
  • 1 tbs sesame oil
  • 1 ts thick soy sauce
  • Vinaigrette
  • 1/2 cup rice vinegar
  • 1.5 tbs sugar
  • 1/2 tbs salt
  • Dipping Sauce
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1/2 ts kosher salt
  • 1/2 ts fresh cracked pepper
  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 bunches of watercress, long stems trimmed
  • 2 tomatoes, thinly sliced



Step 1


Prepare marinade by combining garlic, oyster sauce, sugar, fish sauce, thick soy sauce and sesame oil with the beef for at least half an hour, preferably 1-2 hrs.
Prepare vinaigrette by mixing rice vinegar with salt and sugar. It should be a balance of sour, salty and sweet.

Thinly slice the red onion and use about 3-4 tbs of the vinaigrette to pickle and set aside covered in fridge for about 10 minutes. Prepare bed of watercress and tomatoes in a serving platter and set aside.

Heat a large wok or pan over high heat. Add about 2 tbs cooking oil and when it begins to smoke, add an even layer of beef and allow to sear for about 2 minutes, before “shaking” to sear the opposite sides for about another 1-2 minute more to brown all the sides.  Do this in batches to cook all the beef if necessary.

Transfer beef to bed of watercress and tomatoes. Drizzle another 3-4 tbs of vinaigrette over the beef and greens and top with pickled red onions. Lastly, squeeze lime juice over salt and pepper in a small ramekin.
