½ tsp.                                     Salt
4 Tbsp.                                    Vegetable oil
½ cup                                     Onion, diced small

1 cup                                        Thai holy basil, picked
1.  Pound the garlic, Thai chili peppers and salt together. Reserve.
2.  Heat up the wok until very hot and add vegetable oil.
Add the pounded garlic and Thai chili peppers and stir-fry until fragrant.
Add the chopped onion and stir.
3.  Add sliced beef to the wok, quickly stir-fry until sliced beef stiffens
but not yet cooked. Seasoned with fish sauce, oyster sauce and a bit
of sugar stir to mix and cook. Turn off heat, seafood should not be
over cooked or it would become too rubbery.
4.  Before plating the dish add the basil leaves and toss in the pan to wilt.
Serve hot over rice or eaten with rice and Thai fried egg.
*** You can do this with any sauce of proteins, being chicken, pork, beef, or over seafood.
