Thai or Khmer Stir Fry Pork with Holy Basil

Thai or Khmer Stir Fry Pork with Holy Basil
(Thai Pad Ka Prow Moo, Or Khmer Char Sach Jrouk Mreas Prov)

This is very simple dish in Thailand and Cambodia you can use chicken or pork to cook this stir fry.
You can use ground pork or ground chicken or slice pork or chicken. The most importance is to find Holy Basil (Mreas Prov) do not use regular Thai Basil it won’t taste the same. Thai use long beans for vegetables, but I use all kind of color vegetables

1 lb of ground pork or chicken or sliced meat
4 cloves of minced garlic mix with
4 minced red chilies (more or less up to you for spicy)
2 cups of fresh holy basil (deep fry 1 cup and leave 1 cup fresh to garnish)
3 T of oil for stir fry

1 Fried egg to put on the top of the stir fry when ready to serve

For the vegetables
1/2 cup of long beans cut to 1 inch long
1/2 cup of red bell pepper
1/2 cup of yellow pepper

For the stir fry sauce
2 T of oyster sauce
2 T of golden mountain soy sauce
1 T of fish sauce
1 T of brown sugar or palm sugar
1 to 2 T of lime juice

Before you do anything put enough oil to deep fry 1 cup of holy basil in a hot oil for few second then take it out drain it on paper towel set aside for garnish.

In a hot fry pan add oil until hot
Then add garlic and chilies (it will make your cry) cook until garlic is brown
Add ground pork or sliced pork stir fry until meat no longer pink
Now add all the vegetables stir fry until tender
Then add stir fry sauce mix it well,
Last add basil to the stir fry mixture mix well and turn the heat off

When ready to serve spoon the stir fry on to a plate then garnish with deep fry basil and fried egg serve with rice.
