I have made this Thai Style Beef so many times already, and forgot to share it with you. Once a month, I go through my photos which I store for blog posts … and whoop, whoop ! there I found this one, totally skipped my mind.
This Thai Style Beef is saucy and goes very well with pasta, but you can serve it with rice, mashed potatoes or even in pitas. Any leftovers ?? .. use it as a filling on bread for lunch the following day. I do however drain most of the sauce when I use the Beef in a pita or as a bread filling for lunch, otherwise the sandwiches will get very soggy.
You can have dinner on the table in less than 30 minutes, which is always a plus for any busy family, especially during a busy week.
