Asian recipes Pork Starters

Spicy Thai pork


  • 250g Pork mince
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 Clove of garlic, crushed
  • 3 tablespoons Chicken stock
  • Pinch of white sugar
  • 3 tbsp Lime juice
  • Pinch of chilli powder (or chilli flakes)
  • 1 tbsp Fish sauce
  • 1 sml Red onion
  • Handful of mint and coriander leaves
  • To serve:
  • Steamed rice or baby gem lettuce leaves


Heat the stock with the garlic, onion, salt and sugar in a frying pan. Add the mince and simmer quite rapidly, stirring often until cooked and most of the liquid has been absorbed. Season with the lime juice, chilli powder and fish sauce. Mix through the herbs. Check the seasoning and adjust if necessary – it should taste hot, sour and salty.

Serve with rice (as in picture) or spoon into baby gem lettuce leaves.
