Thick Soy Sauce

I do not use regular soy sauce for this recipe. I use Thick Soy Sauce, aka Soy Paste. There’s actually many different types of soy sauce! Thick soy sauce is a lot thicker than your normal soy sauce. It has a richer, sweeter flavor, which is perfect for this dish.

If you can’t find any thick soy sauce, you can actually use regular soy sauce. If you do this route, here’s a couple of recommendations:

  • Add some sort of sweetener. Since Thick soy sauce is more sweet, you are now missing a flavor, so I would recommend adding a bit of sugar or sweetener of your choice.
  • Thicken it. Since Thick soy sauce is, well duh, more thick, you may want to add something to thicken the sauce. To do this, you can mix cornstarch and water in a separate bowl to create a thickener, and then adding it to the dish prior to adding the basil.

How to make Chinese Beef with Mushroom

First gather the ingredients:

  • 1 lb beef
  • Marinade/Sauce:
    • 1 tbsp thick soy sauce aka soy paste
    • 1 tbsp sesame oil
    • 1 tbsp cornstarch
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1 tsp garlic powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 tbsp cooking oil
  • 8 oz mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 tsp garlic, minced

Then, combine beef and marinade/sauce ingredients in a large bowl or zip lock bag. If you are about to cook it, let it marinade at the very least 15-30 minutes. If you are making this ahead, cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes before cooking.

In a large nonstick skillet, heat cooking oil over medium-high heat. When the beef is hot, add the beef, and stir fry until mostly browned, and remove from heat, set aside.

Add mushrooms and minced garlic, and stir fry for about 2 minutes.

Then add the beef back in to the pan. Stir fry beef with mushrooms together for about 1 more minute or for longer if you want it more well done.

Remove from heat and serve!
