Stir fried sliced lamb is a very common Chinese dish. It’s very easy to make, flavorful and delicious. People in China usually cook the dish with Allium fistulosum (Welsh onion, 大葱, which is rarely found in grocery stores in North America, so I replaced welsh onion with leek which tastes very similar. With only 4 steps, you can also make an authentic Chinese stir fry dish.


  • 120g thinly sliced lamb
  • 60g leek
  • 1-1 1/2 tbs cooking wine
  • 1/2 tbs oyster sauce
  • pepper, minced garlic to taste
  • roasted white sesame seeds to garnish


  • I used frozen shabu shabu sliced lamb
  • Only use white-greenish part of the leek and discard darker green parts


  1. Heat some oil in a pan, add trimmed sliced leek, saute
  2. Saute the leek for several minutes and add thinly sliced lamb, minced garlic and cooking wine, stir fry over medium-high heat.
