1/2 Photos of Ga Pao (Thai Stir-Fried Beef With Basil Leaves)
Craving for Thai food? This is a classic dish you can find anywhere in Thailand. Thai holy basil and Italian basil have different flavors but both are aromatics which gives a big kick to this recipe. You can buy holy basil at an Asian supermarket, but you can use Italian basil, which will make the dish sweeter. Ground chicken or ground pork Instead of ground beef are also great. If you are not motivated to cook, this easy recipe will make you happy.
