This weekend, with one confirmed case of strep in the house and everybody generally worn out from a big week, I made some family comfort food. Thai Basil Pork is supposedly Thai street food. I’ve never been to Thailand so all I know is, it’s absolutely delicious.
Mrs. NH recommended that instead of pairing it with rice or rice noodles, we whip up some carrot “zoodles” instead. What we got was an absolutely flavorful dish that scratches an Asian food itch while seeming sorta healthy.
I tweak the recipe a bit each time. This time, we couldn’t find “Golden Mountain Sauce” so I just added more lime and oyster sauce. I also tend to add two eggs to the mix, partially to bulk it up some because of my ravenous family and partially just because I love the eggs in there. Fresh lime is key in this recipe.
It takes a bit of time to make with all of the prep work but once you’re done it is worth the effort.
Now comes the fight for the leftovers.
