Beef and Ampalaya With Oysters Sauce

Beef and Ampalaya With Oysters Sauce
Beef and Ampalaya with Oysters Sauce, this is another popular restaurant dish. Another version is also found at carenderias it is called ampalaya con carne. The carenderia version it sautéed in soy sauce or with the addition of tausi or permented black beans. But most restaurant, Chinese restaurants in particular it’s stir fried with oyster sauce. I have been cooking this on several occasions, it’s a good alternative way of cooking your beef, see also my previous post of beef and broccoli in oyster sauce.


Ingredients:

1 kilo lean beef, thinly sliced into strips
2 large size, ampalaya, split in halve de-seaded, sliced crosswise
1 medium onion, chopped
1/2 head garlic, minced
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup oyster sauce
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/2-1 tsp. sugar
salt and pepper
cooking oil


Cooking procedure:

Marinate beef in soy sauce, cornstarch and a dash of salt and pepper for 10 to 15 minutes. In a wok, heat cooking oil and stir fry beef in batches until color change to brown and start to sizzle and set aside. In the same wok sutee garlic and onion. Add in the ampalaya and stir cook for 1 to 2 minutes then add in about 1/3 cup of water, oyster sauce, sugar and beef. Stir cook for another 2 to 3 minutes, thicken sauce with cornstarch diluted in 1/4 cup of water, continue to cook for about 30 seconds more or until sauce thickens. Correct seasoning if required. Serve hot.

  7. Thanks so much for this! I have a lot of beef right now bought by my husband from Batangas and I'm running out of cooking ideas. I've always loved ampalaya con carne but I never tried cooking it myself. I will serve this for dinner tonight.

  9. thanks for the recipe, just tweaked it to include cornstarch again on the mixture of water and oyster sauce so that the sauce will become more "creamier"
