  • 1 pound chicken breast or pork (cut into strips) or shrimp
  • 1 cup of steamed rice (up to a day old)
  • Thai omelette
  • 1 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 tbsp dark soy sauce
  • 1/2 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp Nam Prik Pao (optional)
  • 1/2 onion, sliced
  • 1-2 bunches of leafy vegetables, such as Chinese Broccoli or baby Choy Sum (optional)
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1-2 Thai chillies, chopped and seeded
  • 1 tbsp coriander (OK, OK... "cilantro")
  • 1 spring onion, chopped (optional)
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 tsp white pepper
  • 2 tsp sugar


  1. Heat oil in a wok or suitably large pan.
  2. When as hot as it's going to get, add the garlic and chillies.
  3. When the garlic & chillies are fragrant, add the onion.
  4. Add the protein and keep stirring!
  5. When just about cooked, add the various sauces, pepper and sugar.
  6. Keep stirring! Taste the mix. If too salty, add acid (lemon juice or vinegar). If too sweet, add some more fish sauce.
  7. Add the omelette & Nam Prik Pao (if you have it).
  8. Once everything is mixed thoroughly, add the leafy vegetables/spring onion.
  9. Now add the rice and coriander and stir to combine.
  10. Once all is combined, have a final taste, as this is your last chance to balance out the flavours.
  11. Once you're happy with it, plate, serve and burn the roof of your mouth off!
