Organic Pad Kra Paow
A Sweet, Savory, and Spicy Stir Fry Dish featuring Thai Holy Basil
PAD KRA PAOW
Pad Kra Paow literally means "stir-fried basil" in Thai. This is a traditional Thai recipe that's often served hot over steamed rice and topped with a fried egg. This sweet, savory, and spicy Thai dish features Thai holy basil and garlic. It's typically stir fried with pork as a protein. In time, pad kra paow has evolved to include other proteins like chicken, beef, seafood, and tofu. Thai chefs also started adding local vegetables to the recipe like asparagus beans, baby corns, onions, carrots, mushrooms, and bamboo shoots, to name a few.
