Shredded Beef Sauce

Shredded Beef Sauce is an Chinese style Beef sauce. It’s a quick and easy recipe but it’s bound to be a winner any day. As with most Asian style sauces,  Soy Sauce is very necessary and will be incorporated into this shredded beef sauce to give it its distinct Chinese flavour. Oyster Sauce adds to the flavour and gives it a sweetish ting but feel free to omit it if you’re not into sweet sauces but oyster Sauce is really the star in this recipe.

I particularly like Shredded Beef sauce cos it’s very easy to whip up and absolutely tasty. To enhance the taste of your sauce, you should consider marinating your beef for as long as possible. I prefer to marinate overnight most times.

Let’s begin…



400g Very Tender Beef

4 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil

1 Teaspoon Sesame Oil (Use Vegetable oil if you can’t source Sesame)

2 Tablespoons Soy Sauce

3 Tablespoons Oyster Sauce

1 Tablespoon Rice wine/Dry sherry or 3 Tablespoons Chicken Stock

1 Tablespoon Corn Starch/Corn Flour

1 Small Onion Sliced

1/2 Green, Yellow, Red Peppers Thinly Sliced

5 Medium Mushrooms Thinly sliced (Optional)

3 Minced Garlic Cloves

1 Tablespoon Minced Ginger

1 Teaspoon Brown/White Sugar

1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder

1/4 Teaspoon Black Pepper

1 Knorr Chicken Cube

1/2 Teaspoon Beef Seasoning of your choice



First, wash the meat to rid it of blood and cut against the grain. Cut in 2 inch diagonal strips. Marinate the meat with the Knorr Cube, Beef seasoning, Garlic Powder and the Corn Starch/flour. Leave to marinate for at least an hour. For maximum taste and flavour, marinate overnight….

  1. I’m not good at home food cooking though I try to cook something. I’ve never been confident all my life in everything that I do. My aunt used to prepare this recipe sometime back and I really enjoyed it. I hope I’m able to get the results as I try it out today. Thanks for the recipe and the steps too. God bless you.

  2. I made this and it was delicious!!!tho I added spring onions and didn’t have mushrooms but it was delish!thanks for d recipe

  3. Pleaseeee at what point do I add pepper? I like spicy(hot) sauce. What type of pepper will give me the desire taste and will still go well with this type of sauce?

  4. Hello ma’am I tried a variation of this yesterday ND it was the bomb. I added meat stock to make it saucy’ and I didn’t stir fry the veggies, also used white pepper in place of black.
    Thanks for the recipe.

  5. Hi Sisi, love your blog. Big fan. Ticks all the boxes. Question is, how do I get the shredded beef sauce to become watery but thick. Thanks a lot. You’ve indeed helped many to conquer culinary fears. Kudos.

    • Hi, sorry for the late response. Thanks for your lovely comment. Not sure I understand what you mean by watery but thick, care to explain better?

      • Hi Sisi, sorry for the late reply. Love love the recipe. Just wanted to know how I could get more gravy. Do I make a cornflour and water mixture and add it at the last stage? I guess I’m not as expressive but hope you understand. Thanks a bunch.
