Sear beef. Place one tablespoon of the olive oil into a wok. Let it heat up on medium-high heat for 1 minute. Add the beef in a single layer. Let cook on one side for 2-3 minutes until seared then flip the beef to the other side and let it cook while stirring the beef from time to time until cooked through. Remove the beef from the pan. Some rendered fat from the beef will be left in the pan.
Scramble eggs. Add the beaten eggs to the wok with the rendered fat (using the fat to scramble the eggs). Let them set then stir the eggs to break them up and scramble them. Remove scrambled eggs from the wok and set aside.
