This was pretty good! I was lucky enough to have the hot basil growing outside in my herb garden. Instead of serving this with rice, I opted to put some on pieces of iceberg lettuce and drizzle the meat with sriracha sauce and eat like lettuce wraps. I do think the flavor of the meat would benefit with the addition of more basil, and also lime juice. But overall, very enjoyable. Thanks for sharing! ~Sue
