Lamb and cashew stir-fry

chopped finely
3 cloves garlic, chopped
4 green onions, cut into 5cm pieces
1/3 cup (80ml) Chinese cooking wine
(shao hsing) or dry sherry
2 teaspoons cornflour
2 tablespoons oyster sauce
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1 tablespoon white sugar
1/4 cup lightly packed fresh coriander leaves


1. Toss cashews in a wok over a high heat until they start to brown. Remove from the wok.

2. Heat 2 teaspoons of the oil in same wok until very hot. Stir-fry 1/3 of the lamb until cooked through. This should only take a minute or two if the lamb is sliced thinly. Repeat with more oil and remaining lamb.
