Very tasty recipe. I did make a couple of changes - I noted that one review suggested adding some Thai chili sauce - I added 2 tbsp perfect heat. I have a surplus of beans in the garden so I added some. I didn't use any corn starch nor peanut oil or chili oil and cut the sesame oil back to 1 teaspoon. No peanuts either. Sounds like I made a lot of changes but the recipe was essentially the same with a bit less oil and added heat - It was a wonderful tasty dinner served with noodles . Thanks Jum for posting
This was really quite nice. I served it over rice noodles but didn't have any peanuts so sprinkled chopped coriander over it. I think a tablespoon of Thai sweet chilli sauce would have given it a more balanced flavour-it was salty, sour, spicy, but just lacking a little sweet.
Made this with some left over pork tenderloin. Didnt have any rice so tossed in some rice noodles. It was great! I did cut back the cooking time by about 8 minutes. Thanks for sharing1
