Thai Beef Chilli Recipe

Remember that Pad Thai recipe I shared a few weeks ago that had me squealing with delight? This one is another favorite I stole from the chef. It is beyond delicious. Usually I taste my food and toot my own horn. So, for your benefit I pulled my best friend from Pakistan into the camera frame and shoved a spoonful of the Thai-spiced beef in her mouth telling her what to say. WATCH THE VIDEO!

Thai Beef

My friend sold it pretty well. The Thai Beef Chilli is indeed really delicious. And for a dish that comes together in less than 20 minutes, you have no excuse but to make this. It’s my go-to when I’m pressed for time and don’t want to grab processed fast food or even greasy Asian take-out. Because guess what? The only greasy take-out that I’m going to be eating would be taken out of my kitchen! HAH!

  1. Can I use some other sauce ,oyster sauce is a pork product and I don’t eat pork.Thanks.

    1. Hi Seema, oyster sauce is not a pork product. I don’t think it ever contains pork or any other animal product except of oyster extract. I get the Panda brand

  2. Hey Rookie, doesn’t it usually require more time till the beef is tender?
    I thought it would get more chewy if I cook the beef strips in that short time.

    1. You are right.. But essentially you want the oil to float up and the only way you can do that is to have a really high flame.
