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.
