If you like spicy asian cuisine, this dish if for you. If you're not the biggest fan of spice- no worries, just remove or reduce the thai chili peppers. The thai chili peppers definitely add significant heat, so feel free to play around with the quantity as desired. This dish took less than 20 min, from start to finish, which is one of the reasons why it's one of my go-to-meals. I also replicate this sauce and put it on chicken, which works great! Feel free to use whatever protein option you have on hand. Ground beef, ground chicken, and ground turkey would all be excellent options.
