Recipe from: Colonel Ian F. Khuntilanont-Philpott
This is a simple stir fry dish: nam man hoi is oyster sauce.
Put a little oil in a wok and sauté a couple of tablespoons of garlic, and a couple of tablespoons of shallots (purple onions).
Add about two pounds of beef, cut into bite sized pieces.
You then add a sauce consisting of:
1 cup of oyster sauce
3 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon nam pla
Stir it until it begins to simmer. If it is a little dry, add a little water. Cover and leave to simmer for five minutes. Then add about a tablespoon of prik phom, fresh black pepper, a tablespoon of fresh ground ginger, and some chopped onions, and stir until heated through.
Incidentally we used a 24" wok for this - but for a smaller dinner party a 14" wok would be safe enough. If you want to cook a lot in a small wok, divide it into safe portions or you'll stir it all over the cook top!
The basic meal is now ready. Serve it with the basic condiments nam pla prik, prik dong, prik phom, and sugar, together with achat, pickled shallots, pickled garlic. You could also use any other vegetable pickles.
