Pork with Nam Prik Pao

This is a versatile recipe, you could the same basic ingredients and make a chicken version, or a seafood one with shrimp or squid, and it would end up tasting good. You could use the store-bought Nam Prik Pao, we used it here, or make your own (it will likely be more spicy). This is a creation of my beautiful Bride's, she attempted to duplicate a traditional Thai recipe, and did a good job, as it turned out quite tasty.

Pork with Nam Prik Pao
200 g pork, sliced very thin
1 Tbsp vegetable oil
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1/2 medium onion, sliced
3 spring onions, cut into thin slices
1/2 tsp fish sauce
1/2 tsp light soya sauce
2 tsp nam prik pao

Heat the oil in a heavy-bottom pan on medium heat. Add the garlic and stir-fry until fragrant and beginning to brown. Add pork and stir-fry until almost cooked, 4-5 minutes. Add spring onion and onion slices and stir-fry for 1 minute more. Add fish sauce, soya sauce and nam prik pao, and stir to coat all. Serve warm over hot rice.
