Bangkok Minced Pork, Rice and Fried Egg  

After an amazing trip to Bangkok, and feasting on some seriously tasty street food. I was inspired by a dish, which I ate for breakfast. This is my version of it, although not the exact recipe the vibrant flavour does comes pretty close.

Ingredients –

Serves 2

• 600g pork mince

• 1 small onion – finely chopped

• 250g green beans – cut into 3cm pieces

• 2 cloves garlic – minced

• Thumb size piece of ginger – grated

• 1 whole chilli – optional

• 1tbsp sunflower oil

• 3 Tbsp. oyster sauce

• 1 tsp. fish sauce

• ¼ cup chopped mint

• ¼ cup chopped coriander

• Juice of one lime

• 4 lime leaves – 2 whole and 2 finely chopped

• Rice of your choice

• 2 eggs

Recipe –

Cook rice

• Fry eggs and set aside

• Fry the onions in a little sunflower oil until translucent

• Add the chopped garlic, ginger and chilli

• Fry for 1 minute

• Add the pork mince and brown slightly while breaking it up

• Add green beans

• Add limes leave

• Add oyster sauce, fish sauce, lime juice

• Mix well

• Add fresh herbs and serve with rice and a sunny side up fried egg

• Top with extra coriander and serve with a wedge of lime on the side

Dees notes –

• You can use chicken mince if you prefer

• Don’t add salt, the oyster sauce is pretty salty

• Remember to chop the lime leaves as finely as possible as they can be a little tough
