Thai cuisine is delicious. It’s one of my most favorite cuisines. Just few minutes in the kitchen and you have a meal that’s savory, sweet and spicy, can’t beat that combination.
This recipe is so easy to make and is packed with flavor and fresh ingredients. Birds’ eye chilies add the spice but if you’re not into that, you can either use one or not use any at all. Thai basil is a must, you can use regular basil if you can’t find Thai basil in your local Asian market but the flavor just won’t be the same.
I used thinly sliced beef steak here, you can use chicken, shrimp or even just vegetables, (shiitake mushroom) to make it vegetarian.
