How To Cook Hot Plate Slice Beef

Step 1

Heat a hot plate over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the vegetable oil and swirl it around to coat the surface evenly.

Step 2

Add the minced garlic to the hot plate and sauté for a minute until fragrant.

Step 3

Place the sliced beef on the hot plate, spreading it out in a single layer. Allow it to sear for 2-3 minutes until it turns brown and slightly crispy.

Step 4

Add the sliced bell peppers, onion, and mushrooms to the hot plate. Stir-fry the vegetables together with the beef for another 3-4 minutes until they become tender-crisp.

Step 5

In a small bowl, mix the oyster sauce and soy sauce. Pour the sauce mixture over the beef and vegetables in the hot plate. Stir everything together to coat the ingredients evenly.

Step 6

Gradually pour the cornstarch-water mixture into the hot plate while stirring continuously. The sauce will thicken and coat the beef and vegetables, creating a glossy finish. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Step 7

Once the sauce has thickened, remove the hot plate from the heat and transfer the Hot Plate Slice Beef to a serving platter. Serve hot and sizzling, allowing the aromas to entice your senses as you enjoy this delightful dish.
