I applied this recipe, from a famous menu from my Faculty at Ubon Ratchathani University, called Kamoi Dtub(Pork’s liver and lemongrass stir-fry). All of us love this menu. It made from pork liver, dried red chili peppers, red onion and sweet basil. If any of you are in Ubon, the Liberal Arts’s kitchen is right by ILC building which is opposite to the only pink building there. Everybody there is very sweet. For any of you who don’t like liver, you can add shimps as in the recipe above.
