Thai Ground Turkey Stir-Fry

Ingredients:
Stir Fry Sauce Ingredients
• 2 T fresh-squeezed lime juice
• 1 T fish sauce
• 1 T Sriracha Sauce
• 1 T low sodium soy sauce
• 1 T artificial sweetener of your choice

Ingredients
• 1 onion, cut in slivers
• 1 red bell pepper, cut in thin strips
• Pam Olive Oil Spray
• 2-3 large cloves garlic, cut in slices (for seasoning the oil)
• 1-2 cups chopped basil leaves or Thai basil leaves (more or less to taste and depending on whether you have to buy basil)
• 1 1/2 lb. lean ground turkey

Directions:

  1. Whisk together the lime juice, fish sauce, Sriracha Sauce, soy sauce, and sweetener to make the stir-fry sauce.
  2. Cut the onion into thin slivers.
  3. Cut the red bell pepper into strips.
  4. Peel and slice the garlic.
  5. Heat the wok or large heavy frying pan over high heat for about 1 minute before you add the Pam spray.
  6. Add the garlic cloves, and cook the garlic just until it’s fragrant. When you smell garlic (less than one minute) remove the garlic and discard.
  7. Add the onion slivers and bell pepper strips to the woke and stir-fry for 1-2 minutes (just until they’re starting to soften), then remove to a bowl.
  8. Add more spray if it seem like you need it.
  9. Then add the ground turkey and stir-fry 5 minutes, breaking apart with a turner as it cooks.
  10. Cook the turkey until any liquid evaporates completely and the turkey is starting to get lightly browned.
  11. Add the vegetables back into the wok, stirring to combine with the meat, and cook about 1 minute.
  12. Add the chopped basil and cook about 1 minute more, just until the basil starts to wilt.
  13. Then add the stir-fry sauce and stir to distribute it in the meat/veggie mixture.
  14. Cook about 2 minutes more, or until the sauce is mostly absorbed into the meat and the whole dish is hot.
  15. Serve right away.
