This is Cambodian Sesame Pear Beef in Red Curry, adapted from the Sala Bai Hotel School recipe for Stir-fried Beef with Red Chili Powder. Delicious!

Loved this recipe! The pears added an awesome flavor. I used a curry and saffron mix because I didn't have any red curry and it turned out great! If you're in the mood for something exotic but don't want to wander too far outside your comfort zone, this is a great dish to start with! Thanks Da Long!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Slice the beef as thinly as possible. I recommend freezing briefly before slicing; the colder the easier to thin slice.
  2. Heat oil on med-hi heat.
  3. Brown beef in Wok for 1 minute.
  4. Slice 4 very thin pieces of the fresh pear and set aside for garnish.
  5. Add Pear, Scallions, Garlic, Soy Sauce, Honey, Curry, and Sesame Seeds.
  6. Stir-fry until golden, about 2-3 minutes or until fresh pear is soft.
  7. Garnish with pear and serve with steamed basmati rice.
