Here’s a taste of (Americanized) Thai food in your own kitchen. Yeah, that sounds a bit cheesy. Honestly this is just a simple combination of a handful of ingredients that can have a big impact. Plus, it comes together quickly so it is great on a crazy weeknight. I think it took longer for the rice to cook than it did to complete this dish.
We served this with baked ham as part of our weekly dinner with friends. It was a nice change from the potatoes dauphinoise that we often serve with ham. The end result was flavorful but not overly spicy. The corral-colored sauce was very nice alongside green summer squash and yellow wax beans.
