This flavour packed Whole30 Thai Basil Beef is perfect for an easy weeknight dinner you can quickly throw together. The beef is tender and caramelized and tossed in a delicious salty sauce with peppers, onions and fragrant basil. This 30-minute one pan Whole30 will last for up to 3 days in the fridge.
Slice the beef very thinly against the grain. Place the sliced beef in a bowl, add the coconut aminos, fish sauce and baking soda overtop and stir to ensure all of the slices are coated in the sauce. Leave to rest while you prep the rest of the ingredients.
Heat the sesame oil in a large skillet or wok on high heat. Working in 2 batches to ensure that you don't overcrowd the pan, cook the beef for 4 minutes until seared and caramelized. Remove the cooked beef and set aside on a plate and then continue cooking the second batch of beef.
Add the onion, garlic, ginger, chili pepper and cook for 4 minutes until the onion begins to soften.
Add in the sliced red bell peppers and scallions as well as the coconut aminos, lime juice and fish sauce and leave to cook for approximately 5 minutes until the peppers are soft.
Return the cooked beef to the pan along with the Thai basil leaves. Give everything a stir to ensure its all well mixed and then remove from the heat and serve.
Although thai basil if prefered, if you can't find any it can be replaced with Italian basil.
