Recipe: Thai Spicy Pork Stir-fry

This is a relatively dry dish that is quick to prepare and cook and would make a good accompaniment to another curry. Please note that red curry paste is salty so do taste the food before adding salt or fish sauce. Although sweet Thai basil is used traditionally, normal basil is a good substitute.


Ingredients

450gm pork (finely sliced)
2 tbsp vegetable oil
2 tbsp Mai Siam Red Curry Paste
110g fine beans (cut into half)
3 kaffir lime leaves (finely sliced)
Small handful basil leaves
1 tsp Mai Siam Palm Sugar
Mai Siam Fish Sauce to taste

Cooking Method

Serves 4

When oil is hot add the red curry paste and stir fry for a minute.

The paste will cook and break down in the wok. At this stage, add the pork and stir fry for approximately 3 minutes.

When pork is cooked, add the fine beans and cook for a further minute.

Add sugar to taste and a little fish sauce if the dish needs a little more salt.

Finally, add lime leave and basil leaves just before serving.
