How to Make Moo Grob Pad Prik Yuak

Detailed Step-by-step Method:

Step 1

To make this amazing dish you need to have some prepared moo grob, our crispy pork belly. It is quite time consuming to make, but a real treat to eat. Here is the recipe. If you don't have moo grob ready and want to make this dish right now, then just use some sliced pork or chicken and it will come out great.

Prepare and measure all the ingredients before you start cooking. Slice the chilies diagonally so they look nice. Cut the green onion into 1 inch pieces. Remove the shells from the garlic, and get the sauces and sugar ready.

Step 2

Use a mortar and pestle to crush the garlic, leaving some nice big chunks. If you prefer, use a garlic press but not a chopper. You need to really push the juices out of the garlic to get the most flavor.

Step 3

Add 1 Tablespoon of vegetable oil to a wok or deep frying pan. Keep the heat low and add the garlic. Just fry it slowly for about 15 - 30 seconds.

Step 4

Add the pre-cooked pork belly slices. Just stir them in and let it get hot for about 1 minute. If you are substituting raw pork or chicken, then cook it in the garlic until it is cooked all the way through.

Add the oyster sauce, soy sauce, dark soy sauce, and sugar. Stir it in and turn up the burner as high as it will go.

Step 6

Let the sauces and sugar melt together over the high heat, and cook down into a thick sauce with the meat. Keep stirring. A little sticking and browning on the pan is good, but be sure not to burn it.

Step 8

Add about 1/4 cup of water - not too much. Stir it into the pan and wash all of the sticky sugar back into the sauce (deglaze) to make a rich and flavorful gravy.
