  • 1pound beef sirloin or strip steak, trimmed, thinly sliced
  • 1/4teaspoon salt
  • 1/4teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1tablespoon canola oil plus 2 teaspoons, divided
  • 8ounces green beans, trimmed, cut into 2-inch pieces (about 2 cups)

  • 114-ounce can “lite” coconut milk
  • 2tablespoons red curry paste
  • 1large mango, cut into 1-inch chunks

  1. Sprinkle beef with salt and pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the beef and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate with a slotted spoon and drain any liquid from the pan; wipe out the pan.
  2. Reduce heat to medium. Add the remaining 2 teaspoons oil, green beans and bell peppers to the pan and cook, stirring, just until the beans begin to color, 2 to 4 minutes. Combine coconut milk and curry paste and pour the mixture into the pan. Bring to a simmer. Cover and cook until the vegetables are just tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Return the beef and any juice on the plate to the pan along with mango; cook, stirring once or twice, until heated through, 2 to 3 minutes. Serve with lime wedges.
