Stir-frying beef together with Tonkin jasmine flowers is a common way of cooking in Vietnam. Tonkin jasmine (Telosma cordata, Vietnamese: thiên lý), aka sabidokung, cowslip creeper, Pakalana vine, Tonkin jasmine and Tonkinese creeper is a flowering vine whose flowers are fragrant and used in cooking like in this stir fry beef dish or used as hotpot vegetables. In Vietnam, Tonkin jasmine flowers can also used to make herbal tea.
In a frying pan, heat the oil and add minced garlic to sauté. When the garlic releases aromatic smell, add beef slices and stir-fry until they are cooked then set a side for later use. Next, add Tonkin jasmine flowers and stir evenly, then add 1/2 teaspoon of granule seasoning, 1 teaspoon of oyster sauce. When the flowers are cooked, add the beef back and stir-fry a little bit then turn off the heat.
