A sprinkling of cornflour gives the sauce a lovely thick consistency!

Combine hoisin sauce, soy sauce, shaoxing wine, cornflour, Chinese five-spice powder, ginger and garlic in a medium bowl and set aside.
Heat wok over a high heat. When starting to smoke, add 2 tsp oil, swirling pan to coat. Stir-fry 1⁄3 beef for 3 minutes or until browned and almost cooked through. Transfer to a large bowl. Repeat for another 2 batches. If necessary, carefully wipe wok clean with paper towel in between batches, before adding oil.
Add remaining oil to wok, swirling to coat. Add onion and stir-fry for 1 minute or until softened. Add mushrooms and stir-fry for 1 minute, then add sugar snap peas and stir-fry for 1 minute or until almost tender.
Return beef to wok, along with reserved hoisin mixture and 1⁄2 of the shallots. Stir-fry for 1 minute or until heated through. Serve topped with remaining shallots.
