I know that at the sight of this sauce, many people African especially will puke and never want to have anything to do with it but then, Shredded Beef Sauce is not as bad as the mind conceives it to be.
Going through its recipe, I realised that every ingredient used in preparing this sauce is what we eat either individually or combined to make a dish, so really there is nothing to puke for or about.Shredded Beef Sauce is a chinese style beef sauce with a quick and easy recipe, packed with a lot of nutrients as it contains a lot of veggies. As with most Asian style sauces, Soy Sauce is what give this sauce its distinct Chinese flavour while Oyster sauce gives it sweetness.
For this sauce, we will be using two recipes – one without the oyster sauce and sugar and the other with both. This offers you a great chance to make a choice of how you want youe shredded beef sauce. Leggo!

Sauté for a minute, be careful not to burn the garlic then add the marinated beef into the pan, stir and fry till cooked, this should take 5-10 minutes, depending on how soft the meat was.
