Stir-fried Beef in Oyster Sauce

A simple but delicious recipe. In Thailand fresh straw mushrooms are readily available, but oyster mushrooms make a good substitute. To make the dish even more interesting, use several types of mushroom.
Made from extracts of oysters, oyster sauce is velvety smooth and has a savoury sweet and meaty taste. There are several types available; buy the best you can afford.
