This Spicy Thai Basil Pork recipe is one of my easy go to’s for busy days. Most stir fry type recipes have include browning the meat, removing it from the pan, adding the vegetables, add the meat back in and then add the sauce. It can be a bit complicated. Not this recipe. Everything is cooked in one pan without removing any ingredients. It is sure to be a hit at your dinner table!

  • 1# Ground Pork
  • 1 cup Yellow onion, julienned or chopped
  • 1 tbsp Garlic, minced
  • 2 Thai chiles or a pinch of red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 cup Coconut aminos
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 8 large basil leaves, chiffonade or rough chopped

Add the ground pork to a large skillet over medium heat and brown. Once browned, drain any excess fat and then add the onion, garlic, chiles or red pepper flakes and stir until the onion starts to soften
Once the onions are about half way cooked, about five minutes, add the coconut aminos and lime juice. Stir to coat all of the pork. Some of the liquid will evaporate, that is okay. Season with salt and pepper
Remove the pan from the heat and add the basil. Stir until the basil is incorporated. Serve warm with roasted vegetables such as bok choy, and broccoli. Add cauliflower rice and garnish with scallions and a lime wedge. Enjoy!
