Thai pork dishes

Thai pork dishes

Thai cuisine mostly consists of potent aromatic and spicy ingredients. Pork meat is sufficient to achieve that goal for a dish. It gives absolute umami that can blend well with herbs and spices. That’s why Thai menus have excellent pork dishes, which will make anyone drool. These Thai pork dishes will prove how Thai cuisine is different from the rest of the world.

Famous Pork Thai Dishes 1: Pad Kee Mao

The name translates to ‘Drunken Stir Fry’ in English. This recipe is one variation of many such ‘drunken’ dishes that are commonly hawked by street-side vendors in Bangkok. The ‘drunken’ description comes from the fact that it originated in late-night revelers’ kitchens after stumbling home from the nightclubs in the morning. This one of the mouthwatering Thai pork dishes has ingredients of sauteed soaked noodles with garlic cloves and sweet soy sauce, pork, serrano pepper,  basil, and bean sprouts.

Famous Pork Thai Dishes 1: Thai Pork Satay

This fantastic pork shish kebab with a Thai flavor consists of peanut butter, green onions, soy sauce, lemon juice, brown sugar, garlic, coriander, and cayenne pepper mixed in a medium bowl. After adding pork, stir all of the ingredients to coat before marinating in the refrigerator. Grill the marinated mix after skewering, and boil the marinade before brushing to the skewers. Pork Thai dishes promise you an unforgettable treat!

Famous Pork Thai Dishes 1: Pork Thai Dishes with Peanut Sauce

This recipe is quick and straightforward, combining the standard pork chop with the exquisite flavor of coconut and peanuts. Even the kids loved it, proving that Thai pork dishes can satisfy anyone. Stirred flour, cumin, cayenne pepper, and salt spices the fried pork chops. Chicken broth, coconut milk, peanut butter, honey, ginger, and salt cooked together to make the peanut sauce.

Slow Cooker Thai Pork with Peppers

The recipe consists of pork, peppers, and spices cooked together in a Thai peanut sauce until aromatic and tender. This dish makes a satisfying meal served over brown or jasmine rice with steamed carrots on the side.

Place the chicken broth, soy sauce, peanut butter, honey, garlic, ginger, crushed red pepper flakes, red bell peppers, and pork chops into a slow cooker, stir together with low fire.

Pork Thai dishes are worthy to prepare and eat!

Kaeng Hunglay

Northern Thai Burmese Curry is a northern Thailand-style curried stew, usually made with pork belly or other fatty pork meat. Like other pork Thai dishes, this recipe varies widely from cook to cook, and from province to province, with each having the special ingredient that makes it unique. Kaeng Hunglay is quite different from the widely known sweet coconut curries of traditional Thai cuisine. It is more like a rich and hearty meat stew that has a mildly spicy sweet and sour flavor.

The ingredient list usually includes whole garlic cloves, julienne slivers of fresh ginger, and sometimes green beans or even pineapple. The dish is easy to make but does require a long cooking time. The essential ingredient is Garam Masala, an aromatic blend of spices found in Indian and Burmese cuisine. This all-purpose seasoning adds the warm, sweet flavors of toasted coriander, black pepper, cumin, cardamom, and cinnamon.

Pad Prik Yuak

Crispy Pork Belly with Peppers or Pad Prik Yuak is one of the best pork Thai dishes that anyone would love. It is a deliciously creamy and slightly sweet stir-fried dish made with mild green chilies and garlic. This recipe includes Moo Grob, a crispy deep-fried pork belly, cut into thin slices, and then cooked together with a generous portion of fresh garlic, oyster sauce, dark sweet soy sauce, and more. For extra color we added the mild red chili. If you are not fond of hot and spicy stir-fries, then this dish is for you. It simply burst with wonderful flavors and takes less than 5 minutes to prepare.

Meatball Snacks

The meatball snack food stalls in Thailand are to many Thai people what hot dog vendors in the U.S. are to Americans. Meatballs are one of the most popular and easily found Thai street food snacks. As with hot dogs, it is not likely that you will find someone selling their own homemade meatballs. With this recipe you can enjoy the delicious and very authentic flavor of pork Thai dishes wherever you are. They are quite easy to prepare with your choice of ground pork, chicken, or beef, and we serve them up with two popular Thai dipping sauces.

Khao Kha Moo

Braised Pork Leg is a version of Kha Moo that is a delicious and flavorful pork leg roast. This one of the best pork Thai dishes that is braised and then simmered for 3 – 4 hours in a broth made with star anise, cinnamon, cumin, sugar, soy sauces, and Shitake mushrooms. The result is a rich and juicy pork roast unlike many others. Traditionally, it is served as a one-dish meal over steamed rice, with a spicy garlic dipping sauce, fresh bird’s eye chilies and cloves of garlic. You will usually get it with boiled egg and either blanched Chinese broccoli or pickled mustard greens. While normally eaten in this plate lunch style, this pork is good enough to be served as the main course at a family-style dinner.

Stir-fried Eggplant with Chopped Pork

This delicious Thai stir fry makes a wonderful lunch when served with some piping hot steamed rice, or serve it as a main dish with other foods for a complete meal. This recipe combines beautiful bright green eggplant, the one called Makua Yao, with lean ground pork, sweet basil, mild chilies, and pea eggplants. It is quite simple to make, and you can easily substitute ground beef or chicken if you do not eat pork for an equally satisfying dish.

Garlic Pork

This popular Thai-styled stir-fried garlic pork dish is known here as Moo Kratiem. It has thinly sliced pork tenderloin cooked in a rich and slightly sweet brown sauce. Served next to some hot Thai jasmine rice and topped with homemade crispy fried garlic flakes, it makes an excellent but very easy to prepare a one-dish meal.
