Hints and Tips

Pork mince works equally well in this dish.  You can also add baby corn or broccoli to this stir fry.

Heat a wok (or large fry pan) over a medium-high heat add the peanut oil, spring onions, garlic and ginger and cook for 2 minutes.

Add the beef in batches and cook until the beef is cooked through (about 8 minutes).

Add the hoisin sauce, szechuan pepper and beans, turn the heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes.

Lastly add the capsicum and bean shoots and simmer again for 2 minutes.

Serve immediately.
