This recipe was created because our neighbors had an excess of Thai basil and asked if I wanted it. Now here in the Midwest we've only just got proper spring, so I was wondering how he had excess herbs. Turned out they had been trying out a AeroGarden and they love it! Definitely something I will look into!

Thai food is well known for its flavor combination of salty, sweet, and sour – but if you add the aniseed notes of Thai basil to all that – it gets even better! I've used ground beef for this recipe, but you could definitely use ground pork, chicken, or turkey if you prefer.

How to Make Low Carb Thai Basil Beef

Heat some oil in a large skillet and brown off the beef. Drain off most of the excess fat. Add the red pepper, minced garlic, and onion powder. If you want to know how many carbs in red bell pepper – it's only 3.3g net carbs for the whole pepper! It adds color and flavor too – perfect for this recipe!

Cook for another 2-3 minutes or until the pepper has softened. Mix together some fish sauce, soy sauce (or tamari), low carb sweetener, and lime juice. *Sweetener is always optional in a savory dish, but I think just a little sweetener makes the balance of flavors really work in this recipe. I highly recommend a brown low carb sweetener like Swerve. Also, if you don't have any fish sauce (nam pla), then you could substitute with extra soy sauce. It wouldn't be quite the same – but good enough!

Add the sauce to the pan, warm through, and at the last minute add the basil leaves. Serve, garnished with sliced green onions and more basil.
