Directions:
1.Heat up your stir fry pan or your wok and a little bit of oil.
2.- If you don't have a wok then get one.
3.Add the garlic and cook for about 15 seconds to release the flavor.
4.- If you are a vampire do not add garlic.
5.Add the beef. Cook for 30 Seconds.
6.-If you are a vegetarian then you can use some marinated tofu.
7.-Then add the vegetables along with the Thai Basil, cook for another 45 seconds. It will take longer for ground beef just cook it until lightly brown.

9.Now add the chili sauce and fish sauce.
10.De-glaze the the pan or wok with 3 oz of beef or chicken stock and serve over white rice.
11.If you find it is too spicy you can "cut" it with some palm sugar adding several tablespoons will help lessen the heat.
