For the beef:

  • 1 lb. 450g flank steak, sliced in thin strips
  • 1 tsp. water
  • 1 tsp. cornstarch
  • 1 tsp. soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp. coconut oil
  • 1 red bell pepper sliced
  • 2 green onions sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 cup 24g Thai basil leaves (or regular Basil)

For the sauce:

  • 2 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp. fish sauce
  • 1 tbsp. oyster sauce
  • 4 tbsp. water
  • 2 tbsp. brown sugar


  • In a medium bowl, place the beef, water, corn-starch, and soy sauce. Toss everything to coat and marinate for 10-30 minutes.
  • Heat coconut oil in a large skillet over high heat. Remove the beef from the marinade and sear the beef until browned, (2-3 minutes), then set it aside.
  • Add the bell pepper and green onion to the same pan and cook for 2-3 minutes. Next, add in the garlic, and cook for another 1 more minute.
  • Return the beef back to the pan along with the sauce. Cook until thickens, about 2-3 minutes.
  • Lastly, add in the Thai (or regular) basil and cook until it is just wilted. Serve immediately, garnished with green onions and sesame seeds alongside rice.
