Recipes using pac peo as ingredient?

I accidentally bought a big bunch of pac peo at my local Global Foods market and I don't know how to use it. I know it is used in Vietnamese as well as other Southeast Asian cuisines, but I'm having a hard time finding recipes online. Any ideas? I also have pork and chicken on hand, so any recipe that includes one of those would be appreciated.

Thanks!

    Use it just like you would basil. Very similar in flavor, maybe just a tad more minty.

      Thanks. I usually put a handful of Thai basil in my green curry, so I'll use this, too. I read somewhere to put it in salad, too.
