Tips

Coat the meat in oil instead of adding oil to the wok. You use less oil this way. You can also add ingredients like a little soy or grated ginger for flavour. Use your fingers to massage the oil into the meat strips.
Best beef cuts for stir-frying: Use beef stir-fry strips or prepare your own from rib eye/scotch fillet/tenderloin, sirloin/porterhouse/New York, rump, boneless blade, round, oyster blade or topside steaks.
