00:15
 

In a small bowl combine the fish sauce, soya sauce, sugar and chilli flakes.

Heat a well-seasoned wok over a very high heat. Once searingly hot, pour in the vegetable oil.

Add the beef and garlic. Stir-fry for 30 seconds, breaking up the meat with your spatula.

Add the thinly sliced green beans and onions. Stir-fry furiously for a couple of minutes, again using your spatula to move the meat around the wok.

Pour in the sauce mixture and stir-fry for another couple of minutes or until the sauce is mostly absorbed by the meat.

Add the sliced chillies and the basil leaves. Take the wok off the heat and stir to combine until the basil is just wilted.

Serve immediately.

Serve:
With plain jasmine rice, a runny fried egg and extra chillies on the side.
