Thai Basil Beef Stir-Fry

If you haven’t already tried my Thai Basil Chicken, or prefer beef instead, this dish is similar in flavor but boasts a hearty mix of vegetables, hosting a “one pot” meal of its own. I just love the aroma of fresh Thai basil leaves and it’s this ingredient that brings the magic to the table.

Thai Basil Beef Stir-Fry

While Thai basil can be substituted with regular basil, the former cooks and holds its flavor – a pronounced peppery, spicy and warm licorice or anise taste – much better in stir-fries. Don’t let the size of the leaves throw you off in regards to how much should be used, they shrink down during the cooking process. If you haven’t already tried cooking with Thai basil I recommend giving it a try as just the fragrance alone can win you over.
