Beef with spring onion and ginger

beef spring onion ginger oyster sauce

One of the quintesiantial Chinese stir-fries: The sticky sauce coats the beef perfectly while the egg white gives the beef a smooth texture and prevents it from becoming dry. When at the height of my laziness, I throw in some choy sum so that takes care of the veges, but Hubs frowns upon this practice.
