Excellent recipe. Extremely easy to make - in fact, this was all I made for dinner. Wonderful aroma while cooking, and a great flavor. I actually used aborito rice because that's all I had, but I cooked it as rice and not risotto. Wonderful! Thanks, Sue!
This is KraPOW! A bit too spicy, so I'll cut the chilis in half next time. I only had reduced sodium soy sauce so it needed salt. But, Very good! Will definitely make this again. I think it would be great with shrimp too!
Update: I make this frequently with leftover rice. The full sodium soy sauce is a must, and I made it with shrimp this week and it was awesome!
This recipe is very versatile and works great even with substitutions. Things I did to this recipe:
I used, leftover chicken, shrimp, chopped steamed veggies, added a touch of oyster sauce, and peanut oil, used rice noodles instead of rice. Took out the spice for kids.
Served cold for pack lunches for my kids. I got rave reviews, they loved it eating it with the pair of chopsticks in each bag.
Even though I made some changes, this still came out great! I used leftover cooked pork instead of chicken and scallions rather than shallots. Also added some corn as well. Very adaptable recipe!
Very tasty recipe that is so adaptable! Used jasmine rice, oyster sauce instead of fish sauce, and crushed red pepper instead of the chopped pepper. Also, I added sliced red bell pepper, grated carrots, fried egg, and spicy red pepper paste. This recipe was a great jumping off point for the dish I ended up making--thanks so much!
we loved this stir fry, simple but tasty, i added some fresh asparagus and used leftover grilled chicken breast, will definately cook this on a regular basis
Yum!!! I've never had the original dish so I'm not sure how authenitic mine was, but I will make this again. I followed other reviews' advice and added a sqeeze of lime, more soy sauce, and scrambled eggs. I also left out the cilantro since my husband doesn't like it and added a good spinkle of chili powder since where I live we don't have the fresh chilis. I loved the fresh, fresh taste of basil! It is very different! Thanks for posting!
This was so tasty! I had to replace the Thai chili with Siracha. Instead of chicken, I used red bell peppers and broccoli. I didn't take the time to look at the recipe the day before, so I only had freshly made rice. So instead of mixing it all in, I made a bowl of rice and made everything else and simply poured it on top of my rice, but it was still delicious.
Very tasty! I added bean sprouts and guessed at the basil, cilantro and red pepper flakes but it turned out delicious!
Remarkably delicious - I made a few subs, but I found the key things were frying the garlic in oil, and the 1:1:1 ratio of soy sauce:fish sauce:sugar. (I was skeptical about adding so much sugar, but I'm glad I did.) I don't have fresh basil, so after a few secs of frying the garlic, I added a few dashes of dried basil to the oil as well. I used rice vermicelli instead of rice, and added a bunch of frozen spinach. Overall very quick and good meal!
