If you haven't already, you should try the version at the Wild Ginger at
Pike Place. Here's a recipe:

Cut beef into thin slices, season with salt and pepper. Soak chilis to
soften. Chop chilis, ginger, shallots and garlic. Place them in mortar
with lemon grass, coriander root, lime peel, peppercorns, and shrimp paste,
pound until smooth.

Pour coconut milk in wok, bring to boil. Add beef, cook until tender,
remove, set aside. Discard milk. Pour coconut cream in wok, bring to boil.
Reduce heat and simmer until oil separates. Add spice paste, cook 4-5 min,
stirring constantly. Add beef, peanuts, 8 basil leaves, fish sauce and
sugar, stir well and cook slowly 2 more min.

Transfer to serving dish, garnish with basil, lime leaves and chilis. This
version is about 2 stars.
