Number Seven Thai Pork

Serves 4 Prep Time 5 minutes   Cook Time 21 minutes   Rated:

Well it seemed like a good number at the time! I love to write recipes in my head before actually committing them to paper, and so using seven throughout this recipe helped me
remember it well! And trust me: those seven cloves of garlic are completely necessary. This is sort of a San Choy Bau of sorts, but fully Thai-ed up! Pretty sure you’ll make it a few times —

if not at least seven times.
