Ground Beef & Basil Stir-Fry

Ground Beef is used for so many great recipes.  We've come up with a great, easy to prepare and budget friendly stir-fry.  Easy for a weeknight meal to feed and fuel your family.  The flavors are sure to make your tastes buds pop. This recipe makes about 4 servings. 


The Sauce: 

This sauce is sweet and savory with a little kick to it

5 Tbsp Soy Sauce

3 Tbsp Brown Sugar 

2 tsp Fish Sauce 

1 tsp Chili Flakes 

2 Tbsp Water 


The Ingredients: 

1lb of PREMIUM 80/20 GROUND BEEF – Van Lith Ranch

1 Bell Pepper, seeded and sliced 

1/2 Yellow Onion, sliced 

4 Garlic Cloves, minced 

2 Handfuls of Fresh Basil leaves, chopped 

White Rice for serving



Prepare the sauce: Whisk together in a bowl all of the sauce ingredients and set aside.  Doing this first will allow for the sauce ingredients to marry together and create each bite the same as the last.  

Prepare the beef & veggies:  In a large skillet, brown the ground beef breaking up into small bits while you cook. Once browned, pull the ground beef out and add the bell pepper, onion and garlic.  Cook down until veggies are tender about 5-7 minutes.  Add ground beef back in. Add the chopped basil. Pour the sauce over the beef & veggies and simmer for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and pour over a bed of fluffy white rice or noodles.
