Basil Pork is a simple and delicious Asian dish that I enjoy when I get the chance. Today was one of these chances because I was able to get some fresh holy basil. Although regular fresh basil can be used, I still try to use holy basil to make it taste more authentic.
I love how basil pork taste: it is a bit sweet and there is a little salty flavor from the fish sauce and soy sauce. The basil gives the dish a nice flavor and also helps the dish attain its fresh taste and provides an appetizing aroma.
A cup of steamed white rice and a piece of fried egg is all that it takes to make your lunch meal complete — or should I say two cups of rice.
