Our 20 minute recipe

  • 1.

    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). 

  • 2.

    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. 

  • 3.

    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. 

  • 4.


    Serve the rice with the Thai basil pork on the side, with a squeeze of lime over each plate.
