    Combine the cornflour and five-spice in a medium bowl. Add the beef and toss to coat.

  3. Step 3

    Heat the remaining oil in the wok over medium-high heat. Stir-fry the onion for 2 mins or until soft. Add the garlic, capsicum and snow peas. Stir-fry for 2 mins or until snow peas are just tender. Return the beef to the wok and add choy sum, bamboo shoots and oyster sauce, soy sauce, stock and sugar.
