Hands down this is my ultimate comfort food. Served all day on the streets, though eaten mostly during breakfast and all throughout daytime. This one meal dish is stir-fried quickly and gobbled down even quicker. Pork, chilies, a few sauces thrown in, finishing with a big generous handful of thai basil, and topping off with a fried egg and a splash of fish chili sauce onto the rice. (Making it at home, I like to put the additional red/yellow bell pepper for color and nutrition) —FrancesRenHuang
grams of ground beef (can substitute with any other meat)
red onion, sliced thinly
3 to 5
thai chilies, chopped
3 to 5
cloves of garlic, peeled and chopped
thai basil leaves, packed
Generous pinch of ground white pepper
fried egg per person, finishing with a dash of soy sauce
Heat the woke with 1 tbsp of oil, when oil just starts to smoke, add garlic, chili, sugar and onion; stir-fry until onions are soft and golden brown.
Add meat and stir-fry for around 5 minutes; add soy sauce, oyster sauce, fish sauce, and stir-fry until meat is well-cooked, another 2~3 minutes; take off heat and throw in basil leaves, stir-fry until well combined and wilted.
Garnish with ground white pepper and serve with a fried egg over thai jasmine rice. Accompany with fish sauce as needed.
