2 tbsp vegetable oil

4 garlic cloves, roughly chopped

2 large mild chillies, sliced

2-3 bird’s eye chillies, sliced (optional)

Steps
  • Step 1

    Heat the oil in a wok or large frying pan over high heat. Add the garlic and stir-fry for 1 minute. Add the beef and stir-fry until almost cooked. Add the eggplant and chilli and stir-fry for another minute. Stir through the fish sauce and oyster sauce. Cover with a lid for 2-3 minutes to allow the eggplant to steam and soften. Remove the lid and add the basil leaves and toss to wilt the leaves. Remove from heat and serve with steamed rice.

  • Notes
    Notes:
