Pad Kra Pow (Thai Holy Basil Stir Fry)

Step 1:
In a bowl, mix the ingredients for the sauce and set aside.

Step 2:
In a wok, heat 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil over a high flame. Add the minced beef and cook until just browned, breaking it up with a spoon. Transfer the beef into a bowl and remove any juices.

Step 3:
Add the other tablespoon of vegetable oil and cook the chilli, garlic and shallots for around 3 minutes until the shallots have caramelised.

Step 4:
Add the beef back into the wok and mix well. Add one tablespoon of sauce and stir for around one minute until the sauce caramelises.

Step 5:
Add the remaining sauce and cook until the sauce has reduced and the beef has a shiny glaze.

Step 6:
Turn the flame off or remove the wok from the heat. Add two tablespoons of Thai holy basil and stir until wilted. Serve with rice.
