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.
