Minced Pork With Tomato Sauce (Nam Prik Ong)

Minced Pork With Tomato Sauce and Boiled Vegetables or Thai call is “Nam Prik Ong with Pak Tom”. This recipe of Thai Cooking we playing a crucial role in the balance of hot, salty, sour and sweet taste. The vegetables are traditionally dipped into the relish and then eaten, you can also use fresh or boiled vegetable as you wish. But you might find it easier to use a plate. Because this dish is quite spicy even with just a few chiles, I suggest using the least amount the first time you make the recipe. Enjoy ka.;)
