  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil or light flavored olive oil
  • 1 lb skirt steak cut against the grain into very thin strips
  • 1 lb green beans trimmed
  • 3 inch piece of ginger about 1/4 cup peeled and cut into very thin matchsticks
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce or soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil leaves roughly chopped, plus more for topping
  • cooked rice for serving


  • In a very large skillet, warm the oil over medium-high heat. Add the steak and cook, tossing or stirring constantly just until browned, about 4 minutes. Remove the cooked steak to a plate. 
  • Add the green beans, ginger, and garlic to the juices left in the skillet. Toss to combine, add water, and cover with lid. Continue cooking over medium-high heat for 5 minutes. Uncover and continue tossing the green beans in the skillet constantly until the green beans are crisp-tender, about 5-7 minutes.
  • Return the beef and any juices to the skillet along with the fish sauce and basil. Toss quickly to coat and cook about a minute. Sprinkle with more basil, if desired and serve immediately, by itself or over rice. Enjoy!
