Stir-fried Beef, Green Beans and Chilli

Quick as flash lunch, this one. I usually get the budget porterhouse cut for all my stir-fries.

For one, you’ll need:

  1. 100 g. of budget porterhouse steak, sliced
  2. a handful of green beans
  3. 1 red chilli, sliced (be careful, some red chillis you get at Safeway are ridiculously spicy nowadays)
  4. 1/2 onion, sliced length-wise
  5. 1 tbsp fish sauce
  6. 1 tbsp oyster sauce
  7. a pinch of sugar

Heat your wok really nice and hot and add a tablespoon of cooking oil. Throw in your beef, onion, and green beans. Stir quickly and keep the food moving (heat remains the highest you can get) for about 2-3 minutes. Add the chilli, sauces and sugar and a bit of water if required. I like the green beans a bit firm. If they are very fresh (and you should only buy them if they are fresh and crunchy), it’s okay to slightly undercook them.

Serve with freshly cooked rice.
