Authentic Flavor at Home!

We’ve recently started going out more for dinner, which is great! Whether it’s for birthdays or because of a lack of groceries, we find ourselves sampling more great restaurants in NYC! We noticed we’ve really been leaning more towards Asian cuisines, as they’re so full of flavor and color. We took all our friends to a great all-you-can-eat Japanese hot pot on Grand St. – 99 Favor Taste. The food and service was amazing! It’s one of those “cook it yourself” deals – you order mountains of raw meats and veggies and cook them all up on the communal table grills or in your own boiling hot pots. It’s a really great alternative to an ordinary dinner date since you get to play with your food and customize your eating experience.

Continuing the Asian kick, we also visited a well reviewed Thai spot – Potanjee. The place was gorgeous, very affordable and the food was amazing. We got tom yum soup and crispy chicken dumplings before we dug into our entrees: a delicious coconut milk curry soup and a spicy cashew beef Thai stir fry. The Thai stir fry was juicy and paired so well with cashews, we decided right then and there we were going to recreate that dish at home!

The Key Ingredient

Later that week, we got to work and gathered up all the ingredients to create that delicious meal and we’re happy to say it tasted authentic! One of the key ingredients was toasted sesame seed oil. We’ve made Asian dishes before without this particular ingredient and they still turned out great. But we never expected a few drops of this oil to make our Asian creations taste so authentic! We skipped the olive/coconut oil and butter in this recipe and opted to use toasted sesame seed oil for all the frying. One whiff will instantly remind you of the distinctive smell and flavor of your favorite Asian foods!

We highly recommend buying a small bottle of it and experimenting with a few Asian recipes! Our Cashew Beef Thai Stir Fry being one of them!

Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Chop up all your veggies ahead of time to make life easier! We minced up the garlic and cut the ginger into matchsticks. We sliced the carrots and jalapeno while leaving the red onion and zucchini pretty chunky.

  2. Warm up a tablespoon of toasted sesame seed oil in a wok on medium heat and let your garlic, onion, ginger and carrots cook until fragrant. Keep an eye on the garlic- lower that heat if it starts browning too fast.

  3. Then add in your zucchini and jalapeno as well as your seasonings. Toss everything to combine and set aside in a plate.

  4. Slice your cut of beef pretty thin while you warm up another tablespoon of toasted sesame seed oil. Brown your beef slices on both sides. Work in 2 or 3 batches if you need to. Season both sides with salt, pepper, red pepper flakes and Chinese 5 spice.

  5. Add your veggies back in to your browned beef and toss. Pour in 1/4 cup of beef broth (or any broth you have, water works too!) as well as 1/4 cup of coconut milk. If you don't have coconut milk, add 2 tablespoons of heavy cream or omit entirely.
    throw it all together
  6. Add in your cashews (we used roasted cashews for the best pop of flavor) and let this cook uncovered for about 8 minutes.

  7. Lastly, add your fresh basil and stir to combine. Cook for another 5 minutes and serve.

  8. Garnish with green onion and enjoy!
