Serves 4

Ingredients

480g beef fillet, finely sliced

3 dessert spoons (dsp) of sunflower oil

3 cloves garlic, crushed, chopped

5 bird’s eye chillies, chopped

1 heaped dsp red curry paste

50g galangal, finely sliced

30g galingale root, finely sliced

4 kaffir lime leaves, torn

80g string beans, cut 4cm

50g bamboo shoots

50g purple aubergine, cut lengthways, sliced

3 bunches of fresh green peppercorns

3 chillies, sliced

80g Thai round aubergine, cut in 4

2dsp fish sauce

1/4tsp sugar

30ml chicken stock or water

10g sweet basil, torn

Cooking method
Bring the wok to a medium heat, add the oil, garlic, bird’s eye chilli and red curry paste and stir until you get an aroma. Add the beef and stir for another 30 seconds before adding the galangal, galingale root and kaffir lime leaves. Add in the string beans, bamboo shoots, Thai round and purple aubergine, fresh peppercorns and chillies. Season with the fish sauce and sugar and then add some chicken stock or water around the edge of the wok so it doesn’t cool and you gather in the nice ingredients around the edge. Stir for a minute.

To serve
Add the sweet basil and serve with Thai jasmine rice.

A few handy tips..
Be careful not to overcook the vegetables as they should be crunchy.
Use fresh or frozen kaffir lime leaves rather than the dried leaves, which have very little flavour.

SERVE WITH….
