Seven Flavored Beef

  • 8oz. Beef (lean)
  • 1 tsp. Chinese Five Spice
  • 1/2 tsp. Ginger
  • 1/2 bunch Green Onions with Tops, chopped
  • 1 tsp. Lemongrass
  • 1/2 tsp. Minced Garlic
  • 1/4 cup Red Onions
  • 1 tsp. Red Pepper Flakes
  • pinch Stevia
  • 1/2 tsp. Thai fish sauce

 

  1. Combine all ingredients other than the green and red onions in a nonreactive baking dish and marinate beef for 1 hour in the refrigerator.
  2. Heat a non-stick pan over high heat [check the maximum heat recommended for your pan, as some non-stick pans should not be overheated!]. When pan is hot, add red onion and sear for 1 minute. Add beef to very hot pan [again, make sure you don’t damage your pan] and sear until cooked to medium. Add in the green onions and stir until the green onions are hot. Serve!
  3. While the marinade looks like very little, it really has a really strong Asian flavor with the lemongrass, red pepper flakes and the ginger. It’s one of those dishes that is designed to satisfy sour, sweet, salty and tangy. If you don’t have Lemongrass, the recipe is still good. Feel free to modify to suit your taste!
