Not familiar with lemongrass? It’s a type of herb that’s commonly used in Southeast Asian cuisine for its citrusy and floral flavour. The white part of the lemongrass stalks is often used in cooking, either chopped or crushed, to infuse dishes with their unique aroma and taste. Lemongrass is also believed to have several health benefits, including reducing inflammation and aiding digestion.

Notes from Rouba

  • For more sauce, double the quantities of the sauce ingredients.
  • Jasmine rice makes a great side dish to complement the flavours of the stir-fry.
  • You can use other cuts of beef such as flank or sirloin tip if sirloin is not available.
  • To make slicing the beef easier, partially freeze it for about 30 minutes before cutting it.
  • If you prefer less heat, remove the seeds from the chili peppers before adding them to the stir-fry.
  • Be sure not to overcook the vegetables to maintain their crunchiness and vibrant colours.
