Imagine sitting on your couch late at night, pondering the idea of making some Thai basil beef. The thought alone is enough to make your mouth water. And the best part? This recipe is incredibly quick and easy. In just fifteen minutes, you can go from the kitchen to the couch, indulging in a hot bowl of this delicious dish. It has become my go-to weeknight meal, and for good reason.

If you’ve never experienced the unique taste of Thai basil before, you can easily find it in some grocery stores or Asian supermarkets. However, if you can’t get your hands on it, don’t worry. You can easily substitute regular Italian basil and still achieve a similar flavor profile. While it may not have the same cinnamon-like notes, it will still take you on a journey to the heart of Thai cuisine. Now, let’s dive into the recipe!

Thai Basil Beef: Recipe Instructions

  1. Heat your wok over high heat and add the oil. Sear the beef until it is just browned. Once done, remove it from the wok and set it aside. If you need guidance on how to slice and velvet beef for stir-fries, make sure to check out Bill’s post for complete instructions.

  2. Add the garlic and red pepper to the wok, stirring them for about 20 seconds. Next, add the onions and continue stir-frying until they are nicely browned and slightly caramelized.

  3. Time to bring the beef back into the wok! Add the soy sauce, dark soy sauce, oyster sauce, fish sauce, and sugar. Stir-fry everything for a few more seconds, ensuring that the flavors come together harmoniously.

  4. Lastly, fold in the Thai basil. Allow it to wilt ever so slightly. This will release its aromatic flavors and add the perfect finishing touch to your dish.
