Thai Basil Beef Stir Fry


Spicy Beef and Basil Thai Stir fry is an exotic dish that is easy to make at home.
I love Thai food.  I remember when I first started working and had some extra money to splurge on myself, going out to eat was always fun.  My friends and I would go to the same Thai Restaurant called Siam.  We must  have eaten there at least once a week.  
I never thought I could make this kind of food at home, but now I hardly go out to restaurants so making my own take out is a must.  This Thai Basil Beef Stir Fry is as close to the Thai Basil dishes I would get every time I went out.  
Now that I have kids and am a stay at home mother, the days of splurging out at restaurants is left mostly for special occasions.   I am proud that I was able to feed my whole family for about the price of one dish plus the tip (gratuity) I would have spent for a meal out at a restaurant.  Now with all the money I'm saving, I can splurge on other things for my family.
