Fast and easy to cook, this delicious dish is not only popular along the streets of Thailand, but also in Asian restaurants across the globe.



Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 10 minutes
Makes: 2 servings

Ingredients
300g minced beef (substitute with chicken/pork if you prefer)
100g green beans
5 cloves garlic
20g or a big handful of Basil, stems removed (Holy Basil/Thai Basil work best; others are OK too, but fresh Basil leaves are a must.)
6 Thai chillies (Bird's Eye Chillies/Chilli Padi. Adjust amount to your preferred level of spiciness.)
1 tablespoons cooking oil (I used Peanut Oil)
1 tablespoons dark soy sauce (or more if you like your food saltier)
1 tablespoons fish sauce (or more if you like your food saltier)
pinch of sugar
handful of water
2 sunny-side-ups and 2 bowls of cooked rice to serve

Method
Chop up garlic and chillies.

Snip off the ends and chop up the beans into 2cm pieces

In a pan, add oil and bring to a medium-high heat. Toss in garlic and chillies. Do not overheat the oil nor over-fry the ingredients.

Add the minced beef, mixing it well with the garlic and chillies.

When the beef is half done, add in the beans.

When the beef is almost fully cooked, pour the dark soy sauce and fish sauce over. Sprinkle in your sugar. Mix it all up. (At this point I like to add in a handful of water for more sauce.)

Turn off the heat and stir in your Basil leaves.

Serve immediately atop cooked rice accompanied by a fried egg.
