Get in my belly | Thai Basil, Beef and Cashew Stir-fry

I posted a tweet yesterday about what I was making for dinner and a few of you requested the recipe ... well here you go. Enjoy - it's so yummy!

Stir-fried Basil Beef with Shiitakes and Cashews

Serves: 4


* 1/4 cup coconut oil
* 1 pound grass fed beef, sirloin or top round, cut into thin strips
* 3 cloves garlic, minced
* 1 sweet onion, peeled and thinly sliced
* 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms (either domestic or shiitake
* 1 small hot red chile, sliced (or I use a 1/2 - 1 teaspoon of garlic chili paste)
* 1 red bell pepper, seeded and cut into julienne strips
* 1 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
* 1 1/2 tablespoons fish sauce
* 1 teaspoon cane sugar
* 20 Thai or sweet basil leaves
* 1/2 cup roasted cashews or peanuts


Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil over high heat in a wok or large saute pan. Stir-fry the beef and garlic for 4 minutes and remove from the pan. Add the remaining oil to the pan and cook the onion, mushrooms, chile and red bell pepper for 2 minutes. Stir in the beef mixture and add the soy sauce, sugar, basil leaves and cashews. Heat through and serve over steamed jasmine rice.
