Chinese black pepper beef stir-fry can be made at home to a restaurant standard, with tender and succulent beef strips in a black pepper-flavored sauce.



For the marinade

  • 350 g flank or skirt steak12oz (see note 1 & 2)
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon Shaoxing rice wine
  • 1 teaspoon light soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil1 teaspoon gingerjulienned

For the sauce

  • 3 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 1 teaspoon light soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon sugar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 3 tablespoon water

You also need

  • 2 tablespoon cooking oil
  • 1 onionjulienned
  • ½ red bell pepperjulienned


  1. Cut the beef into strips (against the grain). Combine with the marinade ingredients. Allow for a 10-minute rest.
  2. Set aside after combining all of the sauce ingredients.
  3. In a wok, heat the oil over high heat. Sear the marinated beef until brown (should still be pink inside). Place it on a separate plate.
  4. To the remaining oil in the wok, add the onion and pepper. Cook for about a minute.
  5. Return the beef to the wok. Stir fry for another 1-2 minutes, or until the beef is cooked through.
  6. Add the sauce and mix well. Stir until the sauce is thick enough to coat the beef and vegetables.
  7. For a more intense flavor, add more ground black pepper (optional). Serve immediately with steamed rice.


The best cuts of beef for quick stir-fry are flank steak and skirt steak. Tenderness is achieved by slicing it across the grain.

Using a less expensive cut of beef (for braising) is not ideal, but it is acceptable. Before marinating, it must be tenderized.
