Ginger Beef Stir-Fry (Pad Khing Nuah)

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by sabrina

I found this recipe in a beginners Thai cookbook by the Australian Women's Weekly and tweaked it slightly. It is simple to make and has a lovely ginger kick. I suggest serving with basmati rice, however rice noodles also work well. A tip from the book is to put the beef in the freezer for an hour before preparing so that it is easier to slice thinly.

Made this for hubby and Little Miss (I don't eat red meat) and they both enjoyed it. The flavours smelt like a Thai kitchen (We all miss Thailand). I had to leave out the Thai basil because hubby doesn't really care for them (I love Thai basil). They both said it was delicious, I enjoyed it because it made a quick and easy dinner. Thank you ~sabrina~
