1. Place the steak in a bowl, add 5ml/1 tsp of the oil and stir to coat.
2. Bring the stock to the boil in a large saucepan. Add the steak and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Drain, reserving 45ml/3 tbsp of the stock, and set aside.
3. Heat the remaining oil in a preheated wok. Stir-fry the garlic for a few seconds, then add the carrot and celery and stir-fry for 2 minutes.
4. Stir in the Chinese rice wine, caster sugar and oyster sauce and season with pepper. Add the steak to the wok, together with the reserved stock. Simmer for 2 minutes.
5. Mix together the cornflour and water to a smooth paste. Add the mixture to the wok and cook, stirring constantly, until thickened.
6. Stir in the spring onions. Transfer to a warm serving dish and serve with plain boiled rice or noodles.
