A great Thai dish that is a favorite of my wife. Serve with jasmine rice, tomato and cucumber slices, and additional cilantro sprinkled on top. The contrast between the hot peppery beef and the tomatoes and cucumbers is great.

  • Heat 1 1/2 tablespoons sesame oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Carefully add about 1/4 of the beef slices to the oil and saute until mostly browned, 3 to 5 minutes. Season beef with 1 tablespoon pepper and about 1/4 of the cilantro; continue cooking until the beef is no longer pink, 2 to 3 minutes more. Remove beef with a slotted spoon to a serving platter and repeat process with remaining ingredients.

Tips

Cook's Note:

The key is fresh ground black pepper.

Minced garlic from a jar is not a potent as fresh minced, so cut amount to 3/4 cup when using fresh.

Editor's Note:

I feel like the flavor balance is off. It could be very tasty but it is so salty that I could barely finish my serving. I added broccoli to put in some veg. The flavors that are good are very good. It is just undermined by the salt. I have some of the marinade left. I think adding some acid and sweetness may help balance out the salt of the fish sauce. I m going to throw in some honey and rice vinegar. See if that kicks it up without masking all the original flavors. Read More
