    This turned out delicious!! Kaffir lime leaves are tough to chew to me, and very potent, but I do love the flavor they give off, so I left them whole let them simmer in the sauce, then removed them, kind of like you would treat a bay leaf. Anyway, this had a great Thai flavor and I served it over cauliflower rice and like someone else suggested, this would go great in lettuce wraps too. Added some thinly slice yellow bell pepper and onions just to get a few more veggies in there, very nice :)

    Yum! So easy, yet so delicious. I omitted the lime leaves, which I usually love, but just didn't want that labour for some reason. A great recipe, a keeper!

    I did not have the fish sauce, so I was missing a key ingredient, unfortunately. But yummy nevertheless. Even hubby ate it, and he is a picky eater. Of course, being the unusual sort he is, he turned his into a taco by eating it with tortilla chips, cheese, and some salsa verde. Go figure.....

    Very delicious and easy to prepare. I used dried chilli flakes as I find it easier to judge the heat - perhaps a little less garlic out of consideration for my work colleagues tomorrow - ordinary soy sauce was all I could find - ground chicken instead of beef - lime juice instead of kaffir lime leaves - vegetable stock instead of chicken and ordinary basil instead of holy. It was still very delicious and I will certainly be making it again. Why is 1 cup of chicken stock listed in the ingredients when you only use half a cup in the recipe?
