“I found this recipe in a beginners Thai cookbook by the Australian Women's Weekly and tweaked it slightly. It is simple to make and has a lovely ginger kick. I suggest serving with basmati rice, however rice noodles also work well. A tip from the book is to put the beef in the freezer for an hour before preparing so that it is easier to slice thinly.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Slice peeled ginger thinly, stack slices then slice again into thin slivers.
  2. Heat half of the oil in the wok and stir fry the beef in batches, until browned all over.
  3. Heat remaining oil in wok; stir-fry ginger and garlic until fragrant.
  4. Add beans; stir-fry until just tender.
  5. Return beef to wok with onion, sugar and sauces; stir-fry until sugar dissolves and beef is cooked as desired.
  6. Remove from heat and toss basil leaves through stir-fry.
