Instructions Checklist
  • Whisk together the olive oil, 4 cloves of garlic, ginger, fish sauce, soy sauce, and sesame oil in a bowl, and pour into a resealable plastic bag. Add the beef sirloin tip, coat with the marinade, squeeze out excess air, and seal the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours. Remove the beef sirloin tip from the marinade, and shake off excess. Discard the remaining marinade.

  • Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat and stir in the beef. Cook and stir until the beef is evenly browned, and no longer pink. Place beef on a plate and set aside. Reduce heat to medium, adding more vegetable oil to the skillet if needed. Stir in 2 cloves of garlic, green onion, and onion; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in green beans, beef broth, lime juice, basil, mint, red pepper flakes and pepper. Return beef sirloin to skillet and toss to combine. Remove from heat and toss in cilantro.

While the recipe steps were written unclearly and I had to rewrite them....this dish was superb. I add sliced carrots to give it some color. My teenage sons raved and ask for me to make it again. Read More

I knew I took a risk subbing chicken because the marinade seemed more suited for beef. Even though I used only 1lb thin cut chicken I didn't change the rest of the portions. Fresh beans cooked for a minute in the micro left out the cilantro and added an extra dash of red pepper. Served with lime flavored basmati rice. I hoped the basil & mint flavors would come thru in the final dish like it does in Pho but maybe it's different when cooked this way vs. soup. Overall mine was a healthy dish packed with a lot of ingredients but not much excitement so I may try again with beef. Read More

I don't eat meat so tried it with tilapia... the marinade was a bit too strong for the fish. The veggie sauce was great. Read More

This is a great dish. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is the amount of fish sauce. The combination of flavors was great - just too salty for my taste. I will likely make this again and start with only 1/8 cup of fish sauce. I used fresh green beans mushrooms and bell pepper as well as onion. Read More
