Thai Sweet Pork




Prep all ingredients and prepare rice before starting, it cooks really fast.

Heat a large skillet or wok over high heat, add oil, and heat until oil hot. Add garlic, fry for a few seconds. Add pork, fry for one minute. Add fish sauce, sugar, and pepper, and fry for another minute and a half.

Serve over rice, and garnish with crispy shallots.


This is from one of my all-time favorite cookbooks, True Thai by Victor Sodsook.

You want to be sure the pork is done through. If you've sliced the pork thin enough the two and a half minutes is plenty, with thicker pieces you may need a bit longer.

Sweet and delicious.

A recipe for cripy shallots is forthcoming.
