Beef Stir Fry

Most Thai and Lao children first learn how to cook sticky rice or jasmine rice before other dishes. However, the beef stir fry was my first dish when I was 11 years old. This shows you how simple it is to make this dish. Make sure that cooking time does not exceed 3 minutes.

Stir Fry Recipe: Beef Stir Fry
2 cups chopped beef
1 tablespoon oil
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon oyster or hoisin sauce
1/2 cup snow peas
1/2 cup chopped sweet red peppers
1/4 cup chopped red onions

Add chopped beef, garlic, soy sauce and oyster sauce. Mix thoroughly together and marinate for 1/2 hour. In a wok, over high heat, add oil and marinated beef. Stir fry until 50% of beef is cooked. Add onions and stir fry for 1 minute. Add snow peas and sweet peppers and stir for 2 minutes. Stir fry beef should not take longer than 3 minutes.

Serve with sticky rice or khao chow and the Classic Thai / Lao Hot Sauce.
