Fried-Rice Ground pork with holy basil (Khow Pad Ka Prow Mou Sub)

Fried-Rice Ground pork with holy basil (Khow Pad Ka Prow Mou Sub). That recipe very easy and fast. As you know Pad Ka Prow is a favorite Thai dish for Thais and many Westerners. Local dish for every meal. Easy to find around street food. Simple to prepare, it is a quick one-dish meal. The addition of fresh chilies makes the dish spicy, but you may adjust the recipe to taste by adding fewer chilies. Ordinarily we ate Pad Ka Prow with hot steamed rice. But today I need spicy fried-rice. So I made this up.

  • 100 g Ground pork 
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, finely chopped 
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil 
  • 1 tsp black soy sauce 
  • 1 tsp oyster sauce 
  • 1 tsp fish sauce 
  • 1 tbsp fresh holy basil 
  • ½ tbsp chilies, chopped (I like a bit more spicy;)
  • A pin of pepper 
  • 1 cup hot streamed rice 

  1. Heat a wok until the oil is hot, and then stir in the garlic and chilies together. 
  2. Stir another few seconds before adding the ground pork. 
  3. Continue Stir-frying until ground pork is cooked thoroughly. 
  4. Add black soy sauce, oyster sauce over the mixture and stir-fry 2-3 times. 
  5. Add hot streamed rice and still continue stir and mix well. 
  6. Then add fish sauce, pepper and seasoning to taste. Stir and mix well. 
  7. Add holy basil leave and continue stir 1-2 times. Turn of the stove. 
  8. Transfer to a serving plate and serve immediately with fish sauce and sliced chili. 

Note: Normally, Thai people love to eat this dish with fried egg.
