1/1 Photo of Garlic Pepper Pork
A recipe I have been developing that borrows heavily from Thai Style Pork in Black Pepper [moo Pat Prik Thai Dam], and is also influenced by a dish of the same name at the SALA Thai restaurant in OKC. It is surprisingly spicy, but not so much compared with some Thai foods. Do not omit or substitute any ingredients. The heat may be regulated by the amount of dried red and black pepper added, and can be adjusted at the very end of cooking, if need be. The fish sauce is very salty, so no additional salt is called for.
