Like buttah! I made this exactly as written (except I only had green peppers) and the meat came out so tender and delicious. I've never had Thai food so I do not know about its authenticity, but I was always afraid Thai food would be too spicy and fishy and salty. This dish is none of those things. The meat is tender and the veggies crispy, the sauce sublime! Thank you Manami (again)!
