Beef with Mushrooms

Here's another recipe that was a favorite in our house when I was growing up. My parents learned this when we lived in Ann Arbor and they took a Chinese cooking class.

  • 1 pound lean flank steak
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon sherry
  • 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 green onion
  • 4 tablespoons corn oil
  • 1/2 pound mushrooms
  • 1 cup thinly sliced celery

  1. Mix beef with 2 tablespoons soy sauce, pepper, sherry, brown sugar, and 1 tablespoon corn starch.
  2. Heat oil in pan; saute shredded onion. Add beef. Cook until color turns (about 2 minutes). Remove.
  3. Put mushrooms, celery, 3/4 cup water and 1 tablespoon soy sauce in pan; bring to a boil.
  4. Add 1 tablespoon cornstarch blended with 1/8 cup water and salt and pepper to taste. Cook until the sauce thickens.
  5. Add cooked beef; mix well. Serve hot.
