Spicy Thai Beef with Coconut Rice Recipe

I recently told you about this cool new subscription service that delivers fresh food right to your door.  HelloFresh not only sends you food but also a recipe card with everything it takes to make the meal on the cards.  We loved our box if you missed my review drop over to give it a read and find out more about the HelloFresh box .

 photo HelloFresh.jpg Today we are sharing a recipe that was one of three in our box.  This recipe took right at 35-40 minutes to prepare start to finish.  You may could do it a bit faster than I.  I got jalapeno  up my nose and had my head stuck under a faucet of cold water no lie.  Lesson learned to not wipe your running nose with the back of your hand after slicing and dicing jalapeno.

Now that you've had a giggle at my expense. No seriously it was pretty funny.  I did look a bit insane and my whole face was a bit red.  So don't make that mistake.   Okay now that the giggles are out of our system lets get to the recipe.
