Pad Kra Pao Mhoo is a dish we usually like to order at a Thai restaurant. Ingredients are simple and it’s easy to make. A simple dish like this, however, brings us back memory of our Thai trips. For the first bite of this dish, we instantly recall episodes of our delicacy hunting, shopping at Big C Market, taking casual walk at Wat Photaram and having a spa… All those good memories emerge like flashback. Simple food like this one can actually carry our memory!
泰式肉碎煎蛋飯 Pad Kra Pao Mhoo
Simple and delicious. It also reminds us of our pleasant time spending our vacation in Thailand
Main ingredients are simple. Minced pork, basil (~20 leaves), 2 eggs and fish sauce
Mix the sauce. 1 tbsp of fish sauce, 1 tsp of light and dark soy sauce respectively, 2 tsp of oyster sauce, some sugar. Test the taste
Saute minced garlic and chilli pepper slices on medium heat
Add pork and gently sautee
Add the sauce and cook the pork for awhile until it’s done
On the other hand, prepare rice. We like to use cast iron pot for making rice. It’s convenient and more delicious.
Use a bowl to mould the rice
Back to the pork. We add basil, mix well and then switch off fire
Plate the pork
Stir-fry an egg then it’s done. To make a nice stir-fried egg, we may add a bit more oil. Heat the oil until it’s hot enough. While cooking, keep stirring the bottom to make sure the egg doesn’t stick on the pan. Done when the edge of the egg turns brown and crispy.
It’s always relaxing to spend vacation time in Thailand. We could just leave our vexation behind and get recharged. We wish we can go there again soon!
