Beef With Asian Basil


This is Beef With Asian Basil, one of my favorite beef dishes! You will be surprised at how easy it is to cook this dish, takes less than 5 minutes. Both beef strip loin or rib eye cuts works very well with the recipe. If you slice the beef thinly, chances are you will overcook the meat. So, I find the best way to not overcook the beef is to cube the meat. Try it.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
