Yield: 2 servings


  • Vegetable oil for deep frying
  • 1/4 cup raw cashew nuts
  • 1/4 cup whole Thai chile peppers
  • 2 tablespoons sliced red onion
  • 2 tablespoons green onion (2 inch lengths)
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 6 ounces sliced beef tenderloin or top sirloin*
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper, or to taste
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 1/4 cup sliced zucchini
  • 1/4 cup hot water
  • 1/2 tablespoon fish sauce or low-sodium soy sauce


  1. To prepare nuts and chiles, heat oil to 350 degrees F and fry nuts until golden. Drain and set aside.
  2. Fry chiles until crisp. Drain.
  3. Place nuts, chiles, and red and green onions together on a plate and set aside.
  4. Add remaining 2 tablespoons oil to a hot pan.
  5. Add beef and stir fry quickly, about 30 seconds.
  6. Add pepper and oyster sauce, continuing to stir.
  7. Add zucchini, water and fish sauce. Cook for 1 minute.
  8. All at once, add cashews, both onions and fried peppers; cook another 30 seconds.
  9. Serve immediately so nuts and peppers stay crunchy.


* Chicken, pork, tofu, shrimp or scallops may be substituted for beef. Chicken and pork will have to be cooked longer initially.
