Spicy Ginger Beef

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Manami

Freshly grated ginger adds a peppery heat to the hot red curry and sweet red chili sauce. All three heats combined give this beef entrée, rich and complimentary flavors. A Touch of Thai. This was not prepared for the residents of the home instead it was prepared at a friends' house.U[date on June 07/2008 - made this again and we added green peppers along with the red & yellow peppers and we also added button mushrooms - for a change of pace. It tasted even better than the first time!

We really enjoyed this dish. It has a very nice combination of flavors and colorful presentation. I also used both a red and orange pepper. I served with Jasmine rice. Made for recipe tag.
