Thai Basil Pork | YOUTUBE COOKING VIDEO NO 3


I'm back with another cooking video and this time, the lovely Hanh shot it in a different style to the first 2 videos, I hope you guys like it! Hanh is a girl with many talents and she makes all the videos for me, I'm so lucky to have her since I can't do any of the techy stuff. Thank you Hanh =)

I've always adored Thai basil pork or Thai pork krapow when I've dined in Thai restaurants and never knew just how easy it was to make. In recent years, it's a dish that I often cook at home and love to serve at our dinner parties as I can double or treble the recipe to feed all my guests without too much effort.

Each time I've made this dish or shared photos on social media, I get a lot of questions asking how it's made, everyone adores it! 

It only requires 4 condiments; light soya, dark soya, fish sauce and sugar.

It’s so quick and easy to cook, not to mention how delicious it tastes served over rice. If you fancy going the traditional way, you can also top it off with a fried egg.

I'd love to hear what you guys think about the new filming style, so please leave me comments/likes on my channel! Thanks for all your support as always x 


Don't miss out on my previous videos, Pork in Pepper and Spicy Salt + Chicken in Blackbean Sauce


Ingredients:
750g pork mince
5 cloves of garlic, minced
1 red chilli
Handful of basil
2 tbsp light soya sauce
1 tbsp dark soya sauce
2 tbsp fish sauce
2 tbsp sugar 
1/2 cup water
2 tsp corn flour mixed with 4 tsp water
3 tbsp of oil

Directions:
1. Mince garlic, chop the chilli, and tear off the basil leaves
2. In a bowl, mix the 2 soya sauces, fish sauce and sugar
3. Heat up the wok, add 2 tbsp of oil and when oil is hot, add in the garlic and chillies. Stir it for around 30 secs, then add in the pork mince
4. Break the pork mince up into smaller pieces and when half cooked, add in the sauce mix and the cup of water
5. Let the pork cook on high heat for 5-7 minutes until fully cooked
6. Add in basil and give it a good stir and then add the corn flour mix to thicken
7. Serve the krapow mince pork over steamed rice and add a fried egg on top if you like
8. You can also use chicken or prawns for this dish instead of pork and if you would like to add more vegetables to this, courgette or green beans are a great choice
