Add beaten egg and cook until just scrambled. Add cabbage, and cook for 1 minute. Add black soy sauce, oyster sauce, fish sauce, rice vinegar and golden mountain sauce.
- Cook for one minute and add rice noodles. Toss until thoroughly coated. Add thai basil, and 1-2 teaspoons of sugar. Give it another toss and you’re done!
*Note: There is a difference between Thai and Holy basil. The notable difference is that Thai basil has purple stems and Holy basil does not. Never use sweet/Italian basil in place of Thai basil, it does not taste the same. Most Asian grocery stores will carry all of the ingredients above.
