Servings: 4


  • 1 lb beef (any kind) thinly sliced
  • 1/2 each white onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 13.5 oz coconut milk
  • 2 tsp fish sauce
  • 2 tsp brown sugar
  • 1 cup basil leaves

Pre-Cook (Mise En Place):

  • Gather your equipment: cutting board, knife, soup pot, tongs/spatula
  • Slice onions and bell peppers into thin strips. Mince garlic

Cooking Method:

  • Add oil to a soup pot on medium high heat. Saute the onions until they soften and turn translucent.
  • Next, add the beef and garlic and mix well. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes until they become golden brown.
  • Then, pour in the coconut milk, brown sugar, and red curry paste, and fish sauce.

  • At the very end, mix in the basil leaves and top it off with fresh bell peppers. Serve with rice and juice of a lime wedge.
