  • 750g (1.6 pounds) of rump steak cut into strips
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp grated fresh ginger
  • 1-2tbsp thai red curry paste
  • 1 onion cut into wedges(I used 2 as they were fairly small onions)
  • 1 green bell pepper chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper chopped (color doesn't really matter its just for presentation)
  • baby sweetcorn (use canned if preferred)
  • 220g (7.7 ounces) can of bamboo shoots
  • 1 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 125 ml (4 ounces) beef stock
  • 2-3 Birdseye chillies
  • oil
  • can of water chestnuts (this is optional, I just like them)

Step 1

Place the strips of beef, the minced garlic, the grated ginger, the chopped chillies and curry paste into a bowl and give it a good mix around.


Step 2

This is the mess you will end up with: If you are using fresh sweetcorn, you can cook it quickly by putting it in a bowl with 2 tbsp of water, covering with film and then put it in the microwave for about 3 minutes.


Step 3

Heat some oil in a pan and add the beef and stir fry until the beef is brown.


Step 4

When it's brown take the beef out and set to the side. In the same pan you did the beef in add the wedges of onion and stir-fry for about 3 minutes over a medium heat. you may need to add a bit more oil.


Step 5

When the onions are golden add the bell peppers, corn, bamboo shoots and the water chestnuts and stir-fry for 5 minutes or until the vegetables are tender.


Step 6

Now return the beef to the pan, stir in the fish sauce, the stock and the sugar(thats what that brown dollop is) give it a good stir and simmer for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Keep an eye on the level of the stock, you want to reduce it but not too much.


Step 7

When the beef is tender its time to serve, I had these snazzy wee hot platey things lying around so I decided to use them, I just love the sound of the food sizzling as it hits the hot iron.

I tried a similar kind of recipe long ago, and it tasted really good. I wonder if I could add mushrooms in this?
