Stir-fry Ground Pork With Sweet Thai Basil Sauce

I made this dish for last week Saturday (16-11-2013) dinner.  That day my hubby and I had a very relaxing day all to ourselves.  We didn’t go anywhere, we just stay home, watched some movies, drank a bottle of white wine and just sit back & relax.  For dinner I just made whatever I can find in the fridge.  This is a very simple dish to make, the season is straight out from a package.

2.      In a nonstick skillet with high side, on medium high heat, heat up 1/2 tablespoon of oil, add the garlic let it cook for 1min, then add in the ground pork and let cook it for 2-3mins.

I made this dish for last week Saturday (16-11-2013) lunch.  I was planning to make fried rice for Friday’s dinner but my hubby friends ask us to go out to dinner.  So that’s why the next day I made fried rice for lunch because I didn’t want to waste the left over rice.
