Thai Minced Pork Stir Fry with Holy Basil (Krapow Moo)


Ever since stepping foot on Thai soil back in 2006, I fell in deep love with this dish. I could remember eating it for days in a row for breakfast at a small bakery cafe in Krabi. This is also the dish my husband and I would order every time, in Thailand or in Thai restaurants wherever we are. Thanks to Leela from She Simmers, I have finally been able to recreate it to the way we love it.

Here, I’ve plated it the way we get them in Thailand or authentic Thai restaurants.


The only problem I had was not having enough sauce, which is a fault of mine rather than the recipe. I would pay more attention and retain more sauce next round. I’ve also added chopped French beans to the mince. Just add them in after the meat and continue with the recipe. The French beans should be cooked yet crunchy. For the recipe please click here.

It brought me back to the wonderful country of Thailand and one of my favourite restaurants in Singapore. I hope this dish will do the same for you too 🙂
