2 to 4 servings
  • Marinade:
  • 2 stalks lemongrass, pounded (use only lower 6 inches)
  • 2 tablespoons minced ginger
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon five-spice powder
  • 2 tablespoons chili flakes
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons fish sauce
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 pound flank steak, sliced against the grain into 1/4 by 2-inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh roasted peanuts
  • 1/2 cup small Thai basil leaves
  • Combine all of the marinade ingredients. Add the beef and marinate for at least 2 hours or up to 8 hours in refrigerator.
