    I tried this recipe last night and my husband and I loved it! It is as easy as you said it would be. I have a confession to make… this recipe caused me to buy a head of cabbage for the very first time.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Love this! The hubby is half-Thai and this is a quick and EASY way to get some of that Thai flavor without all the billion ingredients in most Thai cooking. I added chicken for a bit of protein but I'm sure shrimp would be great, too.

    Oh Mr., maybe you not understand THAI enguoh, you cannot think about other countrys with the way you think (western way of cause!) We have culture & tradition that maybe complicate than your though.Why don’t you study history about Thaksin Shinawatra a little more and you will know that he treat Thai country and Thai people like a company He success for manipulates poor people to think Ohh!!! we’re poor, we’re weak, we have to sit and wait for money and everythings!!! More over, hardly study about our beloving King, his works for Thai people much more than you know.
