Our 20 minute recipe
Fry the pork mince
Heat a little oil in a wok over medium heat and fry the CHILLI GARLIC PASTE for 10 secs.
Turn the heat up a little and add the pork, breaking up the mince and frying until the mince has browned (around 8 mins).
Add the Thai flavours
Add the peppers, the THAI SEASONING and 1-2 tsps of sugar and stir fry for 3 more mins.
Add the PAD KRA PRAO SAUCE and 100ml water to make a light broth. Stir well and reduce the heat to low and let it cook for a few more mins.
Taste it, and add 1 tsp sugar if you'd like it sweeter.
Wilt the basil
Heat the rice according to pack instructions
Turn off the heat and add the basil to the wok. Stir it in so that it wilts gently.
Serve the rice with the Thai basil pork on the side, with a squeeze of lime over each plate.

Easy to cook and very tasty
Kirsty - Feb 15, 2019
Really nice. Nearly up there with the top. Good favours and the mince was really moist. I couldn’t finish it all after a bit too much of a starter, but it was just nice cold with salad for lunch the day.

Joanne - Jan 28, 2019
Tasteless.... other than the squeeze of lime. Having loved what I have experienced so far through Simply Cook, disappointed with this one.

Didn't enjoy smelt nice but not keen on the bland taste of the pork mince
Luke - Jan 25, 2019
I liked it and would have give it 4 but my wife hated it so gave it 3. I thought it was flavourful, only put half a teaspoon of sugar in as didn't want it too sweet which was enough. My wife thought it was just one horrible texture.
