Beef Chilli Basil with Fresh Rice Noodles
I just love this dish. And I have to say that it is another great thing to have with the beautiful Fresh Rice Noodles, which if you have never made yet, you should really organise and do! The sweetness of the noodles cannot be underestimated. Who knew? Plain old rice can be so velvety smooth and naturally sweet, but I digress.
If you love spicy colourful food, this dish is for you. You can of course cut back on the chili content by all means, but they do add a splash of colour and as long as you are not just eating them like grapes, you should be fine. They add enough heat, as they are whole, without it being overwhelming.
I hope you enjoy this dish as much as I did...and really, how easy does it look? Pretty easy I think!
