Asian-Style Garlic Beef

Ingredients
  1. 2 Tablespoons soy sauce
  2. 2 Tablespoons fresh lime juice
  3. 1-1/2 Tablespoons light brown sugar
  4. 1 Tablespoon fish sauce
  5. 5 cloves garlic, minced
  6. 3 Tablespoons peanut or canola oil
  7. Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  8. 1-1/2 pounds beef tenderloin, cut into 3/4" pieces
  9. 1 medium yellow onion, sliced into 1/4" thick wedges
  10. 3 Tablespoons chopped salted peanuts, toasted
  11. 2 scallions, both green and white parts, thinly sliced
Method

  • In a small bowl, combine the soy sauce, lime juice, sugar and fish sauce; stir until the sugar dissolves. In another small bowl, stir the garlic, 1-1/2 teaspoons of the oil, and 1-1/2 teaspoons pepper.
  • Season the beef with salt and pepper. In a 12" nonstick skillet, heat 1-1/2 teaspoons oil over medium-high heat until shimmering hot. Swirl to coat the skillet. Add half of the beef in a single layer and cook, without stirring, until well browned, 1 to 2 minutes. Using tongs, turn the pieces over and brown on the other side, 1 to 2 minutes more. Transfer to a medium bowl. Add 1-1/2 teaspoons oil to the skillet and repeat with the remaining beef, adding to the bowl with the first batch when done.
