Stir-Fry Minced Pork with Thai Basil (Recipe Included!)

Too often, I get comments from friends: "You always eat good (restaurant) food!" Not that I'm complaining, but sometimes all I wanna do is to stay in the comfort of my house and have a simple meal. Stir-fry Minced Pork with Thai Basil fits the idea perfectly! Easily prepared in less than 30 minutes, convenient to eat (I served everything in a deep bowl and ate in front of the TV lol), aftermath of washing is very minimum, and most importantly it serves as a tasty and satisfying one-dish-meal. Let's get cooking!


Ingredients (serves 2 pax)

  • 300g Minced Pork (you can substitute with chicken or beef if preferred)
  • Thai Basil Leaves
  • 2 Chili Padi (sliced)
  • 2 Garlic Cloves (finely chopped)
  • 2 Tablespoon Cooking Oil
  • 2 Tablespoon Water
  • Pepper

  • 2 Tablespoon Fish Sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon Oyster Sauce
  • 1 Teaspoon Soya Sauce
  • 1 Teaspoon Sugar

  1. Heat cooking oil in a pan till hot, add chili padi and garlic, saute till aroma is released.
  2. Add minced pork, breaking up the clumps and stir-fry till pork is almost cooked.
  3. Evenly mix the seasoning with the pork and continue to stir-fry till pork is done.
  4. Add water and basil leaves, cooked till leaves are wilted.
  5. Sprinkle dashes of pepper to taste.
  6. Serve with white rice and sunny-side-up.
