  • 1 lb lean beef sliced into thin pieces across the grain flank steak, eye or round etc. (freezing the meat a little makes this job easier)
  • 1 red and 1 green Thai chili diced finely you can more or less depending on your heat tolerance
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh ginger minced and grounded
