DIRECTIONS

  • Place oil in wok or large skillet and turn fire over medium high heat; add garlic and cook until fragrance starts to release- do not burn.
  • Add peas, carrots, mushrooms, bean sprouts, and fish sauce.
  • Steam-fry over heat until vegetables start to get tender, about 10-15 minutes (I forgot exactly how long, but I remember the peas were taking a bit of time).
  • The fish sauce and the liquid exuded from the mushrooms should be plenty of liquid as it was for me.
  • If not, add a tbsp.
  • of water or fish sauce to the pan to finish cooking, but don't get too heavy or it won't have time to cook out.
  • Add the sambal oelek, the basil and the lemongrass, the chilies, and stir well.
  • Beware of the odors coming from the pan; the peppers may get you in the eyes.
  • When the basil and lemongrass have wilted and heated through, add the peanut butter, which should have a mixable consistancy.
  • Stir that in and heat through.
  • Squeeze the lime over all, (watching out for seeds), mix well, and serve.
  • Serve with rice.
