Our 20 minute recipe

  • 1.

    Fry the pork mince

    Cook the rice according to pack instructions, and keep warm.

    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 2 tsps of sugar and fry for 3 more mins.

    Add the Pad Kra Prao Sauce and 150ml water to make a light broth. Stir well and reduce the heat to low and let it cook for a few more mins.

  • 3.

    Wilt the basil

    Taste it, and add 1 tsp sugar if you'd like it sweeter.

    Turn the heat down to low and add the basil to the wok. Stir it in so that it wilts gently.

  • 4.


    Serve the pork over rice with a squeeze of lime.
