Thai Minced Pork with Basil

Thai Minced Pork with Basil
 Thai Basil Pork or Chicken are the most popular street food
dish in all of Thai cuisine especially if Thais are in a hurry
or don't know what to order. Same goes to our family. 
It is a dish with rice, fried egg, some sliced tomato and cucumber. 
It is not a difficult dish to cook and inexpensive also.
I bet your family or friends will love to eat this dish, 
so why wait further.....go now and cook it!

*Note : The above photo is chicken meat, I have totally forgotten
to take the pork photo because we were too engross having our dinner.

300g of Minced Pork
6 Chilies
8 - 10 cloves of Garlic
Handful of Basil Leaves

1 1/2 tablespoon of Oyster Sauce
1 tablespoon of Soya Sauce
1 teaspoon of Sugar
1 teaspoon of Dark Soya Sauce

Using mortar and pestle, pound the Chilies and Garlic (no need to super fine).
or alternatively mince them with knife.  

 Heat up 2 tablespoons of cooking oil and add the pounded chilies
and garlic. Stir fry until really fragrant but not burnt or too dry.

 Add minced pork.  Stir fry continuously.  Cook the pork until about
fully cooked (around 2 - 3 minutes).  If its get dry, splash some
hot water.

 Add in the sauces and keep stir frying for another 30 minutes
or less.  Lastly add the Basil Leaves and mix well quickly and 
immediately turn off the fire.  The basil leaves only needs to cook
for another 5 seconds, and it will continue to wilt from the hot meat or pot,
so don't worry that the basil will not be cooked.  If the basil cook
for too long, it will be chewy and loses it glorious flavour.
Once done, set aside.  
By looking at this photo again, already wanted to cook this dish again.


Thai krapow is one of my favourite dishes and I love to make it at home too. Yum!
