Prep Ingredients for Stirfry

  • Cut 4 asparagus into smaller pieces.
  • Cut ½ a whole head of broccoli into smaller florets.
  • Peel and devein 8-9 shrimps.
  • Chop 3 chili peppers into smaller pieces.
  • Measure and set aside 1 cup of heavy cream.
  • Set aside a piece of butter (1 Tablespoon)
  • Measure and set aside 200 grams of thinly sliced beef (or pork)
  • Mince 2 cloves of garlic ~ set aside 1 teaspoon(!) worth

Make Stirfry

  • Take out a large frying pan or wok. Place in a small amount of vegetable oil.
  • Once the oil get hot, place in the sliced meat. Let it fry until the pink is gone from the meat. Season the meat with few pinches of salt and black pepper.
  • After a while, you'll see some grease accumulate in the pan. Drop in 1 Tablespoon of butter into that grease.
  • Once it melts, add in the chopped broccoli florets. Stir-fry it around with the beef for 20-30 seconds.
  • Then add in the shrimp. Next, add in the minced garlic (1 teaspoon!). Stirfry everything until the shrimp turns orange.
  • Now, add in the chopped asparagus. Stir-fry it around until the asparagus starts to sweat.
  • Now add in 1 cup of heavy cream and deglaze the pan. Use your spatula and run it against the bottom or the sides of the wok to get the charred bits off.
  • Then add in 2 teaspoons(!) of Sriracha Sauce. Followed by the chopped chili peppers.
  • Next, add in 1 cheese slice. Mix it around until the cheese melts into the sauce.
  • Finally, we'll finish with a small drizzle (~1 teaspoon!) of fish sauce.
  • Now reduce the heat to a medium and let the sauce gently boil away for 1-2 minutes. The smell of the fishy sauce will dissipate as it simmers - leaving only the good umami flavor.
  • Turn off the heat and plate it. Eat it straight... or scoop over rice or... slop-up with bread! Bon Appetit ya'll
