Thai Basil Pork

My friend gave me some fresh cut basils from her garden.  I couldn't wait to use it on this Thai dish, basil pork.  I didn't have a recipe to follow.  It didn't taste exactly like what I ordered from the Thai restaurant, but it was still very tasty over Jasmine rice.


2 tbsp cooking oil
1/2  onion, chopped
5 gloves garlic, minced
1 lb. ground pork
3 tbsp Thai sweet chilie sauce
1 tbsp black soy sauce
2 tbsp fish sauce
2 hot chilies
1 bunch fresh basil leaves
1 green onion, chopped


1. Heat up cooking oil in a pan.  Stir in onion until fragrant.  Mix in the ground pork until the meat is crumbly and no longer pink, about 2 minutes, then stir in the garlics.

2. Stir in the Thai sweet chillie sauce, sliced chilies, black soy sauce, and fish sauce.  Mix well and then add the basil, continue cooking until the basil has wilted.  Serve over white rice.


If you like eggplants, you can stir in the eggplants after the pork is cooked.  Adjust chilie or soy sauce to your  own taste.
