Published Wednesday, 17 December, 2014 by Brian Mcauliffe

Chilli beef & basil stir fry



  • 2 beef steaks
  • 4-5 fresh red chillies (depends on how hot you want it)
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 8 leaves fresh basil
  • 10 green beans
  • rice
  • salt
  • oyster sauce
  • soy sauce
  • fish sauce


This recipe is all about the prep, you get that done first, then this will be a breeze.

first take the steaks out of the fridge and leave them to get to room temperature. (15-30 mins)

chop up the garlic and the chilli.

put the chopped up pieces in a bowl and add a dash of rock salt,

with a wooden spoon crush up all this together so it brings the flavour out of the spice.

chop up the steaks into thin slices and add salt.

in a frying pan add olive oil and leave it on medium heat.

when the pan has heated up add the crushed garlic and chilli.

after 2 minutes add the steak and cook till lightly browned. (can still see a little pit of pink)

turn the temperature down.

add a tablespoon of each the oyster, soy and fish sauce.

add the basil and the green beans.

as the sauce reduces, cook the rice and hey presto you are done!
