Pork with thai basil and mushrooms

Pork with thai basil and mushrooms

What do you do when the fridge only offers small scraps of meat, a little bunch of mixed wild mushrooms and some herbs? It’s an Asian take on a very traditional dish around here. And it came out pretty fine I’d like to think. The thai basil gives the sauce a very interesting note (and I mean in a good way!).


  • lean pork
  • mixed mushrooms
  • thai basil
  • cream cheese
  • sake
  • soy sauce
  • fish sauce
  • salt&pepper


  1. slice the meat very thinly and cook it in a hot pan;
  2. add the sliced mushrooms and add a splash of sake;
  3. once the alcohol has gone add a little bit of soy and fish sauce, add a little bit of vegetable stock if needed and then add a little bit of cream cheese (had to finish that one);
  4. season to taste and add a handful of fresh thai basil leaves and serve.
