I'll have to try this, with a substitute sauce. Oyster/fish/anchovy type sauces kind of weird me out. So much that I actually can't eat caesar dressing on me I guess! but the stirfry looks dee-lish!

Yes ladies, oyster sauce is in fact made with oysters, brine, and soy sauce. I guess a good substitute would be soy sauce. Hope that helps!

My flatmates and I live on stir fries! This looks delicious, I'll have to try it. Barbara, I actually asked myself the same question - had never heard of oyster sauce until a few months ago. I sometimes use a lemon grass stir fry sauce you get from grocery shops, it's vegetarian and really good. :)
