Kal Pot


"Fish sauce, egg and rice stirred into a pork, onion and tomato stir-fry. Truly Thai; this recipe came over from Thailand when my cousin brought his wife and son home upon returning from the service! My cousin's wife taught me how to make this dish. To make it spicy, add hot pepper sauce or dried hot peppers!"

  1. In a saucepan bring water to a boil. Add rice and stir. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet or wok. Add pork and onion and stir-fry until done and no pink is showing. Stir in tomatoes and steam until tomatoes are semi-soft. Remove from heat and stir in the cooked rice. Add the fish sauce and beaten egg and stir well; the egg will thicken the mixture. Then it is Kal Pot and ready to serve!

Perhaps more precise measurements would help? (example - four tomatoes...big ones? small ones?)Ours turned out mushy, bland and overwhelmingly tomoto-ey - and the appearance was NOT appetizing, ...

Quick, easy and delicious!

Was it meant to be kind of slushy? because mine turned out that way

This was a good way to use up left-over pork roast.

For this recipe, I served it as a side dish and left out the pork. I also cooked up instant rice (as I've never had luck with long grain rice). Instead of 4 tomatoes, I used a can of petite dice...

Everyone in the house loved this recipe, especially me. I never tasted anything like it before and I would make this again, very good.

I liked this after adding cayenne pepper. Rest of the family tried a bite then turned to PB sandwiches.

Mine turned out very slushy, bland, and tomatoey. Maybe I did something wrong, but I couldn't even eat it this time, so I can't risk trying it again.

I added 2tbsp of fish sauce, 2 eggs, salt and pepper to taste. My husband preferred the dish with some Vietnamese hot sauce. Great quick one wok dinner.
