Sometimes just making your own takeout is quicker, and often it's more delicious. 100% of the time it's healthier, and with this in mind, we present our Beef Basil Stir Fry recipe. With flavors that suggest a much longer marination time than 30 minutes, you'll be surprised with the potency of the umami and spicy taste. It makes for a more-ish and salty meal without any scary additives. All the magic happens in your Thermomix, so if you're feeling lazy about washing up, serve alone with snow peas and basil to top, or rice or noodles if you and yours are a little hungrier.
