Preparations

  1. Step 1

    Soak the Thai chilies in warm water for at least 30 minutes to soften them up before their pounding.

  2. Step 2

    Add soaked Thai chilies, half of the shallots and half of the garlic to your mortar and pestle. Pound until smooth.

    *If you don't have a mortar and pestle, you can use a food processor. It won't have the same authentic flavor, but still be delicious!

  3. Step 3

    Add 3 tbsp. of cooking oil to a wok or large pan. Add the reserved garlic and shallots to the cold pan.

  4. Step 4

    Stir-fry until brown and crisp. Keep stirring it while it fries and once it starts to turn golden, turn off the pan and keep stirring. It can quickly go from brown to burnt if you don't keep your eye on it.

  5. Step 5

    Remove the fried garlic and shallots and place in a small bowl, but keep the garlic and shallot infused oil in the pan.

  6. Step 6

    Now add the pounded chilies, garlic and shallots and stir-fry for a few minutes until fragrant.

  7. Step 7

    Then add ground pork and combine well with chili mixture.

  8. Step 8

    When the pork has cooked a little, add the tomatoes.

  9. Step 9

    Crush the tomatoes with the back of your spatula to help them combine with the pork mixture.

  10. Step 10

    Stir until pork is cooked through and combined well with the tomatoes.

  11. Step 11

    Then add tamarind, fish sauce, sugar, shrimp paste, fried shallots and garlic, and mix it up. We like ours more sweet and sour with a slight salty taste.

  12. Step 12

    You can serve it with lettuce wraps, cabbage, green beans, pork skins, or if you want to make it more fusion, serve it with chips, crackers or pita bread!

  13. Step 13
