Milk Street Recipe

Stir-Fried Beef and Ginger with Garlic and Scallions

25 minutes

This is our take on saiko cha k'nye, a simple but bold stir-fry from Cambodia. The ginger is not just a flavoring here—it's treated almost as a vegetable. A full cup of thinly sliced fresh ginger gives the dish substance; its spiciness and pungency is tamed by cooking. A mandoline makes quick work of slicing the ginger, but a chef's knife works, too. We liked the flavor and texture of beef sirloin tips here, but flank steak also worked. Serve the stir-fry with steamed jasmine rice to soak up the sauce.

Pardon the interruption
