We can’t decide which part of this dish we like best. Is it the ground pork topped with peanuts and spiked with aromatic basil and a few squeezes of lime? Or what about the jade rice with its stunning green hue and vanilla aroma? Maybe it’s the roasted green beans, with their satisfying veggie crispness. No matter which, they all come together to create symphony of flavor.


Produced in a facility that processes milk, eggs, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat, and soybean.

Wash and dry all produce. Adjust rack to middle position and preheat oven to 400 degrees. Bring 1½ cups salted water to a boil in a small pot. Halve, peel, and finely chop shallot. Halve lime. Mince garlic. Pick half the basil leaves from stems and roughly chop (save the rest for garnish). Mince chili, removing ribs and seeds first for less heat.
