Pork & Crunchy Basil ( Yum Mu Sam Chan Grapow Grob )


A typical gop-gam dish to eat as a snack or with alcoholic drinks. This one is fatty pork garnished with crunchy (fried) kaprow basil leaves. We love our snack food in Thailand!

20 gms Large Kaprow Leaves
300 gms Pork with Rind and Fat (3 layer pork)
1 Teaspoon Flaked Chillies
1 Teaspoon Dark Soy Sauce
1 Teaspoon Lime Juice
1 Teaspoon Fish Sauce
Sliced Kaffir Lime Leaves
Sliced Red Onion
Sliced Garlic

Sliced Coriander Leaves
Sliced Mint

1. Clean the kaprow leaves, dry them and drop them into hot oil to just crisp up, this only takes around a minute. Set aside on kitchen paper to drain.
2. Boil the three layer pork in water for 10 minutes to cook it, chop it into tiny strips.
3. Mix the pork with the other ingredients, and shallow fry for 2-3 minutes.
4. Garnish with the fried kaprow leaves, coriander and mint.
