THAI PORK & BASIL
I don’t know about you, but for me I love Thai food. Another thing I love is cooking. But like most people I work a nine to five job. There are just some days when you get home and you just don’t feel like cooking up a storm. On those days a dish like this is perfect. You can whip it up it about 15 minutes and bang, a delicious full flavoured meal done!
Traditionally Holy basil is used for this dish. However I didn’t have any on hand so I’m using Thai basil. Any basil would be nice in this dish so just use what you have or can get.
Let’s get stir-frying hey?
The shopping list
250 grams Minced pork
3 cloves Garlic crushed
3 Bird’s eye chilli finely chopped
2 tbls oyster sauce
1 tbls fish sauce
1 tbls sugar
1 Bunch Thai basil picked
1 tbls Cooking oil
In a fry pan or wok add the oil and let come up to temperature.
Add your garlic and chilli and stir fry to fragrant.
(Careful not to burn the garlic as it will go bitter)
Add your pork and stir fry for 2 to 3 minutes.
Add Fish and Oyster sauces along with sugar to the pan, stir fry for another 2 minutes
Add in the basil and give it a good toss to combine, now turn off the heat.
Transfer to your serving dish with some steamed rice and top with a fried egg.
