For the love of lemongrass

>> Tuesday, October 31, 2006

Janice left a comment earlier on my Five-Spice Tofu with Lemongrass Topping, asking recipe for beef stir fry with lemongrass. Having no written recipe since this dish is something I cook out of experiences, I replied her with very general directions. It was the simple home-style version, which was extremely easy to make. I am so glad Janice tried it out successfully and she liked it. Here is her reply:

Hi Anh,
I tried out the lemongrass beef stirfry tonight. It was great! My hubby said it was very fragrant...thanks for ur wonderful and simple recipe...


(^_^). (^_^)!

Here is the general basic recipe that I typed out:

1. Use a lot of lemongrass - slice the white part thinly. Mix this with your thinly sliced beef and some Chinese Cooking Wine. I recommend a good quality + tender beef. You can add some sliced fresh chili if you want it to be spicy.
2. Heat oil in the pan on high heat, add some minced garlic till fragrant. Then add the beef mixture to the pan, stir fry quickly till the beef is almost cook (still pink in colour). Add fish sauce and some sugar to taste, season with ground white pepper. Do not overcook the beef, or else it will be tough.
3. Dish out and serve hot with rice.

Easy, isn't it? :)

Having said (oh, written) that, I have to admit that there is another version of this dish. A more glorious version which of course requires much more work! I haven't eaten it for ages. But now, the memory of this dish, its aroma and texture really pushes me to the kitchen (*blush*). So ok ok, I promise, for the love of lemongrass (*laugh*), I will make this elegent version soon and post it here!
