Thai-Style Ground Beef

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Redsie

A wonderful recipe from Cooking Light. A delicious way to use ground beef. You can make it spicier by using more red curry paste.

This wasn't quite as quick a lunch as I had hoped for but it was a totally different use of ground beef than just the usual. Fairly well flavored but needed more heat so I added about 1/2 t of sriracha. Served it to DH over rice noodles and myself over pasta. Rice noodles were clearly the better choice. Sprinkled with cilantro, it was a very decent dish!
