Sriracha Sizzling Beef Recipe (video)
Time flies in this fast paced world that we live in - to the point that if time were currency, we would be broke. We wish that time could be paused, however in reality we need to pause from time to time and cherish the moments spent as a family. We no longer live in an era where fathers work to provide for the family, and mothers stay at home to look after the family. We now live in a world where both parents need to work long hours to fulfill many requirements, be it financial, professional, self-improvement or just being career orientated. Not enough time is spent as a family and almost no time spent preparing meals. The nearest takeout is on the menu almost every night. Many people ask me for advice on how to change their kids eating habits and open their repertoire. The solution is easy! Don’t fall victim to ordering their favourite take-outs and get your kids involved in preparing meals. Getting them involved will exhibit to you how fun cooking can be for all of you. For example, I have fond memories of practicing the times tables with my daughter by quizzing her on how many carrots would be needed if I were to double the recipe and she would screech with joy when she gets it right, now she quizzes me.

- 500 grams beef fillet
- 2 tablespoons sriracha sauce
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon cracked black pepper, not powdered
- 1 tablespoon fish sauce
- 1 tablespoon minced garlic
- For the onion pickle:
- 1 onion thinly sliced
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
- Put the sugar and vinegar for the pickled onion in a jar and shake then add the sliced onions and shake again. Leave to pickle for a few hours on the kitchen counter.
- Cut the beef into 2” cubes and mix in the siracha, sugar, soy sauce, fish sauce, black pepper and the garlic, mix and preferably leave to marinade for 1 hour at least in the fridge.
- In a cast iron skillet pour some vegetable oil and fry the beef cube for 4 minute turning occasionally in order the allow the sugars to caramelize.
- Serve with a generous helping of lettuce, carrots, cucumbers and fresh herbs such as mint, coriander and dill etc…
- For a child friendly version substitute the siracha with ketchup and use less cracked black pepper.
- For a balanced meal serve with steamed rice or rice noodles alongside the fresh salad.
- For a gluten free meal use Tamari instead of soy sauce.
- This recipe is equally delicious using firm tofu instead of the beef.
