Today let's learn to make Minced Pork with Thai Basil! When I was growing up in Thailand, my stomach usually rumbled after a long day at elementary school. My favorite spot to grab something and to fill my tiny belly up was a tiny street food cart near school. And my favorite dish? Minced pork with Thai basil. Minced pork with Thai basil or pad krapow moo sap is one of the most popular dishes in Thailand. Its usually served on a pile of hot jasmine rice and topped with a sunny side up fried egg with the yolk still runny. Its savory, spicy, and fragrant of garlic and Thai basil.
