This spicy and herbaceous Thai stir fried, one dish meal, known as Pad Prik Gaeng has an amazing blend of flavors and aromas from fresh lemongrass, galangal, kaffir lime, and dry roasted cumin, coriander, and peppercorns. In this example we are using Moo Grob, our crispy Thai-style pork belly, but you can also use sliced chicken, pork, or beef, to make this delicious and authentic meal.
Our homemade Prik Gaeng Ped is quickly fried together with Crispy Pork Belly slices, green beans, carrot, sweet chili, baby corn, and cauliflower, and of course a huge handful of Thai sweet basil.
The secret to making delicious Thai food is in the sauces, chili pastes, and curry combinations. Our website has step-by-step recipes with photos showing you exactly how to recreate the flavors of Thailand.
