As a full-fledged Chinese person, I'm all too familiar with how to use oyster sauce. It is one of those ubiquitous items in a Chinese kitchen.
Oyster sauce makes any stir-fry tasty. Just sautee some garlic, add slices of meat(if you like meat)--cooked til it done, add vegetables, add 1 tb of oyster sauce, mix well and season with salt and pepper to taste. Dish out and enjoy.
Chinese chow-mein and fried rice also use oyster sauce. It is always used with sesame oil, soya sauce, salt and pepper to taste. Sautee garlic, add meat,add vegetables, add noodles or rice, oyster sauce and then season with soya sauce, salt, sugar and pepper.
We flavor certain soups with oyster sauce too. Oyster sauce can also be used as a condiment. A good easy one: 2 tbs. of oyster sauce, 1/2 ts of sesame oil, 1 ts. of soya sauce, some chili flakes if you like it hot, 1/2 ts of brown sugar--mix it up and enjoy with freshly steamed shrimp, dumplings, wantons and spring rolls.
Of course, all the above are just some common ways. Oyster sauce can be used in many creative ways-limited only by creativity.
