To show that I can do variety, I cooked my guinea pigs Basil Minced Pork one night. This is a great 1 dish meal recipe; that’s precisely why I am blogging about it because it is one of those dishes you do not require lots of ingredients and easy to whip up when you decide last minute to stay home for dinner.
Absolutely love the basil scent as I was chopping away; I could not stop picking the leaves to sniff them. Love fresh herbs~
× 200g minced pork
× Red Chilli
× 2 garlic cloves, chopped
× 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
× 1.5 tablespoon fish sauce
× 1 teaspoon sugar
× ¼ cup pork stock
× ½ cup basil leaves, chopped
On a heated pan, add the oil and stir fry garlic and chili until fragrant. Add pork and continue to stir fry on medium heat until almost ready. Keep stir frying and add pork stock as needed. Add oyster sauce, fish sauce, sugar. Increase heat to high and add in basil. Keep stir frying for few seconds.
Serve with steamed rice and fried eggs.
Used water instead of pork stock and to compensate for the taste, I sprinkled some chicken stock granules. Fish sauce has been replaced by soya sauce in my version. Also, I poured in some cornstarch dissolved in little water into almost ready dish to thicken the gravy consistency.
On the side, I stir fried some fishballs with Kailan. Ginny inspired me to add in some eggs and it turned out not bad! This is also the last meal for us on brown mixed rice, it is not popular with my foodies at home so we switch back to Fragrant Rice.
