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.

Was excellent cooked with Turkey mince with choose again

Roisin - Dec 08, 2019

Absolutely gorgeous! I had it with rice as per recipe but also had it another night wrapped in lettuce leaves. Seriously delicious

Maria - Dec 07, 2019

This was nice enough, but I found it a bit salty. I used Thai basil, they said basil which I wouldn’t use in thai cooking! It was okay, but that was all.

Joanne - Dec 07, 2019

Nice but not amazing

Sarah - Dec 06, 2019

So easy to do. Was sceptical, but it tasted delicious.

It was ok but quite bland. Couldn't taste any of the Thai spices.

Adam - Nov 10, 2019

Tasty but instructions could be a little clearer. Instructions on the app are far worse than the printed ones so refer to those to joy be so confused!

MAISIE - Nov 10, 2019

Easy to follow recipe! Restaurant style meal at home :) Love it..????

Tim - Nov 09, 2019


GRAHAM - Nov 09, 2019

Not great. Lacking a lot of the oomph and freshness of Thai style food. I needed to add quite a lot of flavourings like fish sauce and chilli to get it ‘tasty’.

fiayo - Nov 09, 2019

Not the most flavoursome

shaun - Nov 09, 2019

Wasn't to sure on this one to start with but turned out really well lovely flavour, the pork mince worked really well

Sharna - Nov 08, 2019
