For this recipe we selected some large oyster mushrooms, but any type of mushroom will produce this lovely Thai stir-fried dish. It's quite simple to make with just a few ingredients and less than 10 minutes of your time. We like to use an extra dose of garlic and hot chili for a very spicy plate of delicious mushrooms, but you can use less and it still comes out great.

How to Make Pad Hed Nang Rom

Detailed Step-by-step Method:

Step 1

These are some nice big oyster mushrooms that I found at the market here. You can use any other type of mushroom that you can easily get. Try to get big ones so you can cut it into irregular sizes.

Step 2

I use Thai Sweet Basil, the one often called Star of Siam. In Thailand we call it Horapah, and it has a delicious aroma and flavor like licorice.

Step 3

Start by cutting your mushrooms into chunky bite-sized pieces. Because these are so large, I usually do it in irregular sizes so you can tell that it's mushroom. If you use something like Shitake mushroom, then just cut in half will be good.

Step 4

Roughly grind the garlic and chili using a mortar and pestle so you have big irregular pieces. This is a very spicy dish, so if you're planning to feed any cry-babies you can always use less chili.

Step 5

Heat one tablespoon of oil in a wok or big frying pan over low heat, add the garlic and chili and fry it slowly for about a minute so it doesn't burn.

When the pan is really dry and it looks like it might burn, add just a little water and stir it in well. Continue store frying for about 2 more minutes, or until the mushroom are softened. you want to have just a little sauce, so add a few drops of water as need while cooking.
