Pork With Bean Shoots (Moo Pad Thua Ngok)

Thai Translation – Moo = Pork, Pad = Stir Fried, Thua Ngok = Mung Beans

Mung bean shoots are a super healthy food and when coupled with lean pork mince make for a filling and healthy meal. Served with steamed rice and a side of nam pla prik, it is perfect for lunch or a quick dinner meal.
