It’s another week. Yes! Another hot summer week in London. I have to admit that London looks beautiful when it is sunny. The city seems to be brightened up by the sun and everything looks so much lively.
Quick and simple food seems to be of my preference as of late. Noticeably, I haven’t posted stir-fry recipe for quite a while. So, I quickly thought of sharing a quick delicious basil beef stir-fry. This dish is always our favourite. It’s easy and full of flavours. Since the star of the dish is beef, I make sure I fork out quite a bit for a nice piece of beef fillet, it is the best cut of beef for quick cooking. Thinly cut feather steak is a cheaper option that you could go for.
An extra big handful of basil is a must for this dish! Though, the star is beef but basil plays a very important role to give the overall flavours a lift!
The question of which type of basil to use is entirely up to you. If you could get Thai basil then excellent. If not, sweet basil will produce a less pungent dish. I like to add basil leaves at the very last minute once I remove the wok/pan from the heat so that they don’t wilt too much. I tend to use a bit more garlic than what’s stated in the recipe. One reason, I love garlic and I think the fragrant of garlic goes so well with beef and basil. 🙂
Now, this dish can be done within minutes. So, it’s definitely a great mid-week recipe for y’all!
