    ducky007's Note:

    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.

      This was interesting. I've had this dish at Thai restaurants, but it tasted a bit different. The sauce seemed a bit thin in this version, and there were SO MANY bell peppers. The addition of a fried egg sounded nice, but I hadn't realized I was out of eggs until the last minute so I couldn't add them. Maybe a runny, gooey yolk would have brought all the flavors together for me.
