Thai Basil Minced Pork (Pad Gaprow)

This is our all time favourite Thai dish. It is easy to cook and the fragrant spicy pork goes very well with steamed Jasmine rice. Sometimes, it’s the simple dishes that taste the best and this certainly is proof of that.


  • 500g minced pork
  • 1 tbs minced garlic
  • 3-4 birds eye chili ( use red long chili if you can’t take much heat)
  • Big bunch of Thai basil leaves (leaves picked and washed)
  • 3 tbs oil
  • 2 tbs sweet soy sauce
  • 1/2 tbs premium Thai fish sauce


  • 4 Sunny side up eggs


  • Heat 3 tbs of oil in a wok over medium high heat, stir fry the garlic and chilli for about a minute. Add in the minced pork, stir fry and break up the meat into bits until almost cooked.
  • Add in the sweet soys sauce and fish sauce, followed by the Thai basil leaves. Mix until well combined and leaves are wilted.
  • Serve it together with fried eggs and steamed white rice
