   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 do you need to do :     

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

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

  • 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.
