Ingredients

Steps

01.

Heat half the oil in a wok over high heat; stir-fry beef, in batches, until browned. Remove from wok; cover to keep warm.

02.

Heat remaining oil in wok over high heat; stir-fry onion, about 3 mins or until soft. Add garlic, chilli, lemon grass, star anise, cinnamon, cardamom and beans; stir-fry until beans are tender.

03.

Return beef to wok with sauces; stir-fry until heated through. Remove wok from heat; stir in coriander and nuts. Discard star anise, cinnamon and cardamom before serving.

TIP You can thinly slice rump or scotch fillet steaks instead of using beef strips. Ground bean sauce is available from the Asian section of supermarkets or Asian grocery stores.
