Ingredients

  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 4 Thai red chillies, finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 300g (10oz) pork belly
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 4 tablespoons chicken stock
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 100g (3.5oz) green beans
  • 5 Thai basil leaves
  • Cooked rice to serve

Method

Roast the pork belly in the oven at 180°C until golden brown and crispy.

Using a pestle and mortar, crush the garlic and chillies into a rough paste.

Heat the oil in a wok set over a medium heat. When hot, add the chilli and garlic paste and stir fry for a few seconds. Cut the pork into cubes and add to the pan with the soy sauce, oyster sauce, stock, and sugar.

Fry for a further minute, then add the beans.

Add the basil leaves and stir for 30 seconds, then serve piping hot with cooked rice.
