Such a quick weeknight meal full of simple delicious Thai flavors: crispy garlic, Thai white pepper and oyster sauce!
- 3 chicken breasts (or pork or beef), thinly sliced into bite-sized pieces
- 10 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 tsp. brown sugar
- 3–4 tsp. oyster sauce
- 3–4 tsp. white pepper powder
- crispy garlic topping, sprinkle on top of each serving
- cilantro for garnish
- Marinate the meat for about 30 minutes in a a teaspoon of oyster sauce and 1/2 teaspoon of sugar, give or take.
- Heat cooking oil in a work or pan. Add garlic and stir until it’s a very light-brown.
- Add the meat, and stir-fry on hight heat until it’s cooked through, just a few minutes.
- Add a tablespoon or so of water if you think it’s getting dry.
- Add the oyster sauce, sugar and white pepper. As usual, add teaspoon by teaspoon to make sure you get the flavor combination you like. The pepper flavor should be really prominent, so add until it tingles on your tongue after you try it.
- Serve with rice, and sprinkle some crispy fried garlic and cilantro on top.
Dom loves garlic, which is why I add so much. Add more or less depending on your preference.
In Thailand, they like to serve this dish with a crispy fried egg on the side, and so do we! It’s a great combo!
