Thai Basil Pork Rice (Pat Krapaw Moo Sap)

By Rumblingtummy @RumblingTummi
Last year, the parent volunteers cooked for visitors visiting the school open house.  One of the item offered was Thai Basil Pork Rice (Pat Krapaw Moo Sap).
Don't laugh for this is the first time I remembered this dish.  Though it is a popular dish, my limited knowledge of Thai food that came to mind each time only have tom yum soup, thai fish cake, pineapple rice, mango salad  and etc.
I am sure I ate this before but the impression was not deep until that day.   I had the impression that this dish is hard to replicate but A who is the main chef said that it was an easy dish to prepare.
So inspired that today I know I have to cook it myself.
