Thai Red Curry Pork

I’m a sucker for a good red curry – my absolute favourite would have to be a red curry duck, but this red curry pork comes a very close second, loaded with red curry and creamy coconut milk, a nice crunch of fresh vegetables and sprinkle of chopped peanuts and chilli to top it off, and if you want to add a few more healthy bits, there’s even a scoop of nutty brown rice hiding under the gorgeous spicy coconut broth.  Incredibly simple, quick and easy, its certainly one to keep the hungry crowds from rioting for a few hours at least!  This recipe is structured to be a bulk cook, but by all means, scale it back by half if you only have a small crowd.

Prep time 15 mins, Cook time 10 mins, Serves 8

Kick back with a glass of your favourite white wine (or red if thats your chosen poison) and wrap your taste buds around this bad boy, I guarantee you’ll want to lick your bowl clean when nobody is looking! Cheers ~ LC
