Directions

Preparation:

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.

Cooking:

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.

Very good recipe. I've modified it for just veggies with a beef bouillon cube.

Susan

what do you use for the 'fish sauce' ?

zhangbo

From the directions: Quickly add the remaining ingredients and toss for a moment. It means add fish sauce, soy sauce, white pepper and basil to the wok. Hope this answered your question.
