Moo Phad Nam Phrik Phao (Stir Fried Pork with Thai Chilies Paste)

Dish #4 from our Thai dinner is this Moo Phad Nam Phrik Phao - or stir fried pork with Thai chilies paste. (Want to see the rest of the dishes we made for our Thai dinner party? Click HERE.
I love how simple this dish was... well, to be honest, how simple all of the dishes we made for our dinner party were. A lot of throw-it-in-a-pan and *voila* done recipes. My favorite kind. 
This one is mainly pork with a few veggies thrown in for good measure. It is very bright and cheerful and tastes sooooo good! You can make it as spicy as you like. We went with fairly mild but you can definitely add more chili paste if you like!

Moo Phad Nam Phrik Phao 
(Stir Fried Pork with Thai Chilies Paste)

3 Tbsp oil
1 Tbsp Thai chilies paste (or more...)
4 pork chops, sliced thinly
1/2 cup onion sliced
1 cup carrots, julienned 
1 1/2 Tbsp soy sauce
1 1/2 Tbsp oyster sauce
2 tsp sugar
about 1/3 cup chicken broth
3 green onions, sliced

Prep all of your ingredients and have them ready. 

Heat oil in a large frying pan (or wok) over medium heat. Add in the Thai chilies paste and stir until fragrant. Add in the pork and chicken broth. Stir well until the meat is nearly done. 

Add in the onions and carrots then season with soy sauce, oyster sauce, and sugar. Stir well. If it starts to get dry then add in a little more chicken broth. Cook until vegetables are done to your liking - about 5 minutes or so should do it.  

Add the green onion and stir for one minute. Remove from heat. 

Serve immediately.
This is lovely served with jasmine rice. When Orra took her cooking class in Thailand she was told that some Thai people like to serve this with a fried egg as well. 

NOTE - start with 1 Tbsp of the Thai chilies paste and then go from there. If you like things spicy then add in another Tbsp or 2. You can always stir in a bit more at the end so start with 1 Tbsp and go from there.
