Using a few basic ingredients including the essential fish sauce, which blends into the background but adding a distinctively non-fishy flavor, dinner's on the table in just minutes. From Sunkist.

- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

- Combine marinade ingredients in a bowl. Add beef and stir to coat. Let stand for 10 minutes.
- In the meantime combine glaze ingredients in a small bowl; stir until sugar is dissolved.
- Place a stir-fry pan over high heat until hot. Add oil and butter; stir until butter melts. Add garlic, lemongrass, shallots and cook; stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add beef and stir-fry, until it is seared on the outside and slightly pink in center, about 4 minutes.

I made this for Hubby and Little Miss and they both enjoyed it. I thought the black pepper may be to much but I followed the written recipe and it worked well. Served with steam rice and green salad. Thank you gailanng for a great recipe.
