Thai beef and basil with mushrooms

Submitted by: OOPSIEDAYZ

Introduction

This is a somewhat spicy dish that my husband and I love to eat. If you don't like mushrooms try substituting bamboo shoots. You can also adjust the amount of szechuan sauce depending on how spicy you like your food but watch out for the sodium. The calorie listing is a little high because the calculator did not have a listing for the light coconut milk. This is a somewhat spicy dish that my husband and I love to eat.
