Thai Food Birthday Extravaganza

Today we had a family gathering to celebrate the kids birthdays. Ashley and Zach will be 21 on Oct. 20 and Crystal will be 23 on Nov. 3. Everyone, of course, requested Thai food. I thought I'd share another Thai recipe and a few pics...
Made homemade Thai Eggrolls, Toy's Chicken PotPic, boneless as requested by Zach

and Fried Beef as requested by Ashley and Crystal.

The rice on the left is sticky or glutinious rice and goes with the fried beef. On the right is jasmine rice for the pot pic.

Grandma Toy's Pot Pic

2 lbs. chicken breast, cut into bite size pieces 1 Tbs fresh grated ginger
8 – 10 cloves garlic, peeled 10 -15 Thai peppers
1 tsp. chicken/onion/garlic spice mix* 2 Tbs. oil
1 can bamboo shoots 1 Tbs. fish sauce
1 Tbs. Sugar

Add ginger, garlic, peppers, ginger and spice mix to a food processor and combine until smooth, adding a little water to make a paste. Add mix to medium size cooker and cook on medium high till water is evaporated. Add 2 Tbs. oil and cook a minute. Add chicken and stir to coat. Cook on medium till chicken is no longer pink. Add bamboo shoots, fish sauce and sugar. Serve with hot jasmine rice.

* The chicken/onion/garlic spice mix is available at Asian markets. All the words on the package are in Thai so I call it chicken/onion garlic spice mix. Could substitute by using equal parts chicken buillion, onion powder and granulated garlic.

PS. I almost forgot to say thanks to Jenny and Jonathan for always talking about the deliciousness that is pan sludge. Today, the best part of my whole meal was the pan goo from the Fried Beef. omg.
