Beef with Lemongrass




When you have a 16 month old clingging on to your leg, when you're tight on time, when you're in a hurry but need to have something solid, or perhaps when you're lazy... this dish will fit you just fine!

I have been working extremely hard in making my crafty things. i havent had much time to blog nor reply to those who have commented (but i will try my outmost best, i just recently did!). and it doesnt help when hardy gave me a new toy to play (or should i say craft) with. but anyway, here's a simple dish that will work just fine with chicken, and it'll save you time coz you simply chuck everything in.


Simplicity sometimes works perfectly!




LEMONGRASS BEEF

beef rump steak - sliced thinly
2 lemongrass stalks - chopped
spring onions - sliced
salt
pepercorns - crushed
groundnut oil
2 cloves of garlic - chopped
2 fresh red chillies - seeded and chopped
1tsp light brown sugar
2tbsp thai fish sauce


Method:

1. cut meat and put them into a bowl together with lemongrass, spring onions, salt and black peppercorns. leave to marinade for at least 15 mins.

2.preheat your wok, add the beef mixture and stir fry for about 5 mins until beef changes colour to brown.

3. Add garlic and red chillies and stir fry for another 5 mins over a medium heat until beef is cooked and tender.

Thanks Zaza for sharing this recipe. Simple and delicious looking! Hmm, maybe will try to cook this dish for hubby since he loves beef very much. I never try on cooking beef before, so this would be my 1st try with beef!

I can imagine you (although faceless) with a quaint personalied craft shop in the near future. I love craft too, but baking more. I have a corner in the kitchen filled with pans and pantry of cake ingredients almost sinful.

Can you drop me an email - norhansu@gmail.com. I need your expert advice on...away from privy blog eyes :>. Thanks.
