Before you begin...
Get all your ingredients and equipment ready
Skim through these steps
Wash your fruit and veg
Note: Equipment and pan sizes vary. Make sure you cook food thoroughly (even if it takes you a little longer than 10 mins)
Now, let's get started!
Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of vegetable oil over the highest heat
Chop the green beans in half
Once hot, add the pork mince and chopped green beans to the pan and cook for 3 min, breaking the mince up with a wooden spoon as you go
Squeeze the pouch[es] of steamed white basmati rice to separate the grains
Tear the top corner of the pouch[es] (just a little!) and put the pouch in the microwave for 2 min or until piping hot
Tip: If you're cooking two packets, pop them in together but increase the microwave cook time accordingly
Slice the red chilli[es] finely
Combine the sliced chilli (can't handle the heat? Go easy!), ginger paste, roasted garlic paste, hoisin sauce, soy sauce and fish sauce in a small bowl – this is your fragrant sauce
Add the fragrant sauce to the pan and cook for 30 secs
Add a small splash of water and cook for a further 2-3 min or until the pork is cooked through and the sauce has thickened
Note: Please make sure you cook your pork thoroughly (until there’s no pink meat and it’s piping hot!) as cooking equipment varies
Once thickened, rip the basil leaves into the pan and give everything a good mix up – this is your Thai basil pork with green beans
Set the Thai basil pork with green beans and heated basmati rice in the centre of the table, ready to share
Garnish with the fried onions and let everyone dig in
