 Ingredients List

  • 4 tb Peanut oil
  • 3 Cloves garlic
  • 3 Jalapeno peppers (yes,
  • -really 3!)
  • 1 lg Green bell pepper
  • 1 lb Beef steak

  • 1 tb Dried basil is a weak
  • -substitute, but will work


Peel and chop garlic. Seed jalapenos and remove membrane. Slice. Cut green
pepper into thin slices. Beef should be thinly slice across the grain.

Heat wok and add the oil and garlic. Chow for a very brief moment. Then
add the peppers, chow for a few minutes. Next add meat. Chow again for just
a couple of minutes so that the meat sears to medium rare.

Quickly add the remaining ingredients and toss for a moment.

Serve with thin noodles or rice. 2 generous serving.
