RECIPES | Thai Basil Beef

What You Need:

For the beef:

  • 1 lb. (450g) flank steak, sliced in thin strips

  • 1 tsp. water

  • 1 tsp. cornstarch

  • 1 tsp. soy sauce

  • 1 tbsp. coconut oil

  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced

  • 2 green onions, sliced

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 cup (24g) Thai basil leaves (or regular Basil)

For the sauce:

  • 2 tbsp. soy sauce

  • 1 tbsp. fish sauce

  • 1 tbsp. oyster sauce

  • 4 tbsp. water

  • 2 tbsp. brown sugar

What You Need To Do:

  1. In a medium bowl, place the beef, water, corn-starch, and soy sauce. Toss everything to coat and marinate for 10-30 minutes.

  2. Heat coconut oil in a large skillet over high heat. Remove the beef from the marinade and sear the beef until browned, (2-3 minutes), then set it aside.

  3. Add the bell pepper and green onion to the same pan and cook for 2-3 minutes. Next, add in the garlic, and cook for another 1 more minute.

  4. Return the beef back to the pan along with the sauce. Cook until thickens, about 2-3 minutes.

  5. Lastly, add in the Thai (or regular) basil and cook until it is just wilted. Serve immediately, garnished with green onions and sesame seeds alongside rice.
