An easy marinated beef stir-fry that affords tenderness no matter how cheap the cut of meat!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place basil leaves in plastic bag and mash to release flavors and oils. Add two tablespoons olive oil, soy sauce, brown sugar, pepper, and beef into bag; refrigerate overnight.
  2. Warm a non-stick skillet over medium heat; add remaining oil when hot. Toss garlic and green onion in oil for two or three minutes, being careful not to brown them. Add marinated beef; sauté for 3-4 minutes until cooked as desired, monitoring closely.

sounds relish-trying it now-similar to my own recipe but the overnight soak and smashing of basil sounds like it will be more fragrant.
