With its deliciously pure taste and lean, flavorful texture, grass-fed beef is a natural choice for healthy omega-3 essential fatty acids. Grass-fed beef takes less time to cook than grain-fed beef because it is leaner and lower in fat. So, pay close attention to your cooking times and watch that your beef does not overcook. Stovetop cooking is perfect for grass-fed beef, because you have more control over the temperature than on the grill.



Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil over high heat in a wok or large saute pan. Stir-fry the beef and garlic for 4 minutes and remove from the pan. Add the remaining oil to the pan and cook the onion, mushrooms, chile and red bell pepper for 2 minutes. Stir in the beef mixture and add the soy sauce, sugar, basil leaves and cashews. Heat through and serve over steamed jasmine rice.
