Pad krapow moo, Thai stir-fried pork with basil and veggies
I love this really tasty Thai dish that is easy to make for me. I always use sweet basil in the place of holy basil that isn’t easily accessible, this delicious meal has a great earthy flavor in it thanks to the basil. And you can use beef or chicken instead of pork. It’s perfect for a one-dich-meal over rice and a bento main dish.
