In the Kitchen - Thai Peanut Beef

Asian food of any kind is one of my family's favorites, so anytime I come across one such recipe, it immediately goes on my menu.  Such is the case with this Thai Peanut Beef.

I changed the recipe slightly by adding in some pear juice, and it turned out fantastic, it was quite reminiscent of a Korean Beef Bulgogi.

Thai Peanut Beef
Adapted from: Le Creme de La Crumb

1-2 lbs beef, cut into thin strips (suggestion: flank steak or stir fry beef strips) +
2-3 teaspoons oil
*if using more than 1 pound beef, double the sauce recipe below


¼ cup creamy peanut butter
2 teaspoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 teaspoons tabasco hot sauce
pear juice, I just poured in a little, didn't measure

Whisk together all sauce ingredients excluding peanuts, set aside.

Add oil to large pan or skillet and heat over medium high heat until hot. Add beef strips and cook 8-10 minutes, stirring throughout to ensure even cooking. When Beef has browned around edges and cooked to desired doneness.

Add ½ of the sauce to the pan. Stir and cook 1-2 minutes longer. Serve beef hot and top with remaining sauce and chopped peanuts. Garnish with sliced green onions if desired.

Is the pear juice necessary or can you substitute? Really looks good. Pinned for future meal. Thanks for sharing.
