Share This Recipe
- 4 tablespoons Vegetable Oil peanut
- 3 Garlic cloves
- 1 Green Bell Peppers
- 3 Jalapeño Pepper or other spicy pepper such as banana peppers or thai chilies if you can find them
- 1 pound Beef steak
- 2 tablespoons Fish Sauce Thai, optional
- 1 Tbsp Tamari Soy Sauce
- 1 tsp Sugar
- 1/4 tsp White Pepper ground
- 1/2 cup Basil fresh, chopped, Thai or purple basil if possible
- Peel and finely chop your garlic.
- Seed the peppers and remove the membrane (the membrane contains little flavor and too much moisture) and cut into fine slices.
- Pre-heat your wok or large skillet very hot.
- Cook in 10 minutes:
- Add the oil, allow to heat until shimmering.
- Add the garlic, stir (5 to 10 seconds) then add the peppers. Stir quickly and constantly for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the thinly sliced beef.
- Continue stir-frying for several minutes searing the beef strips to a medium-rare or your desired level of doneness. Too long and it will dry out.
- Turn off the burner on your stove.
- Add the soy sauce, fish sauce, sugar and white (or black) pepper.
- Toss together and then remove from heat.
- Serve immediately with rice or noodles (which of course you prepared ahead of time). Egg noodles work, rice or thin noodles would be more traditionally thai.
