Thai basil beef is a quick stir fry which goes really well with steamed rice. I love to whip this up when I’m in a hurry. To balance the meat and for more colour, I added assorted peas & long beans. You can make this dish as spicy as you like by adjusting the amount of chilli padi. As beef cooks really fast, and overcooking beef will cause it to be tough, I just stir fry the beef very briefly. If you don’t consume beef, you can also use minced chicken or pork, but you need to stir fry the meat longer than beef as they take slightly longer to cook.

    Absolutely yummy and I do so like this Thai dish. It’s looks as good as the dishes from a Thai restaurant.

    May I know which brand of thai fish sauce do you use? Where do you buy it?

    I bought Knife Brand’s before, and it just doesn’t taste nice.

    Looks great! Maybe you can try using holy basil instead of sweet basil. From what I’ve researched, holy basil is the one that is used for authentic thai versions and gives a distinctive flavor that sweet basil can’t beat!
    Unfortunately i haven’t tried yet, not easy to find holy basil in UK!

    Been looking through your blog for recipe as I’m a noob for cooking. Can I check with you, where can I buy parsley, basil & the instant cereal prawn mix? Would like to try some dishes with these ingredients. Also, may i ask what is pasta water?

    Your help will be greatly appreciated. :)
