Why We Like It
WOWZA! This beef skillet was really easy and super good! This is an excellent way to use fresh basil from the farmer's market or your garden! We all loved it and thought it had great flavor -- plus you can easily make it as spicy as you want it to be!
Cook the Rice:
Cook the rice according to package directions. (Typically one cup of rice will require 2 1/2 cups of water.) Set aside when done.
Brown the Beef:
Add oil to a large skillet over medium high heat. Add beef and cook about 10 minutes until cooked through and no longer pink.
Make the Thai Veggie Slaw:
Add peppers, green onions, carrots and jalapeño to a large bowl. In a small separate bowl combine soy sauce, honey, lime juice and fish sauce and pour over slaw. Toss to combine and set aside.
Add Seasoning to Meat:
Add to browned beef and stir to combine. Cook for about 3 minutes until most of the liquid is absorbed.
Serve and Enjoy!
Serve beef mixture over rice and topped with Thai veggie slaw. Add more basil, and peanuts, on top if desired.
Warning! Fish sauce does not smell great…some say it smells like a wet cat, some say it smells like feet! Either way, it may not smell great, but it adds amazing flavor to dishes like this one!
If you use tamari, or gluten-free soy sauce, then this recipe is gluten free!
