Bring the wok to a medium heat, add the oil and garlic and stir until there is a good aroma. Add the beef and stir for 1-2 minutes before adding the onions, spring onions, peppers and chillies. Add the button mushrooms last and stir.
Season with the soy sauce, oyster sauce, black soy sauce and sugar and finally add the chicken stock, pouring it around the edge of the wok to gather in all the ingredients and make sure the wok doesn’t cool down. Stir for just one minute to keep the vegetables crunchy.
Add the sweet basil and serve with Thai jasmine rice.
