Method

    Prepare the marinade | Place all the marinade ingredients into a large bowl and mix well | If using steak, cut into strips. Add the vegan meat to the bowl with the marinade, mix well and set aside for 10-15 minutes | Mix all the stir fry sauce ingredients together in a small bowl

    Chop your veggies | Finely slice the onions, pepper, spring onions and fresh chillies

    Cook your meat | One by one, remove the vegan meat strips from the marinade, allow to drip dry for a second then place in a large bowl or baking tray. Coat in cornstarch, ensuring they are well coated on all sides. Reserve the leftover marinade. Place a frying pan on a high heat. Add 200ml sunflower oil and bring to a high heat, then add the vegan meat strips.

    Shallow fry the strips for 2-4 minutes until very crispy, turning frequently. Remove the strips from the oil and and transfer to kitchen paper. Bring the pan back to a high heat, add a splash more oil then the onions and peppers. Fry for 60 seconds then add the chillies and most of the spring onions, Add the sauce and remaining marinade to the pan. Stir on a high heat for a further 2 minutes until the sauce is thick and sticky.

    Finish and serve | Serve with steamed rice, and top with the remaining spring onions and the sesame seeds.
