Fiery Pork Curry


This is a great make ahead meal. Just finish off after your guests arrive for a very flavourful entre.

4 to 6 Servings
Preperation time 30 Minutes

The sweetness of coconut milk tames the heat of this quick curry,
but it remains a dish for fans of fiery food. You can of course reduce the heat by using fewer chiles.

Serve with steamed Thai Hom Mali Jasmine ice.


1 large onion
3 large shallots
8 - 10 garlic cloves
1 stalk of lemongrass, sliced, and minced
20 to 25 dried red chiles
1 tablespoon neutral oil, peanut, rice bran or grapeseed
1 tablespoon curry powder, preferably homemade
2 tablespoons red curry paste, preferably homemade
3 cups coconut milk, homemade or canned (about two 13-ounce cans)
1 1/2 pounds cubed pork
Fish Sauce to taste
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
Chopped fresh cilantro leaves for garnish

Remove the outer leaves of lemongrass, trim top stalk and bottom hard portion. Slice the tender portion, then mince.

Combine the onions, shallots, garlic, minced lemongrass, and two or more of the chiles in a food processor (the more chiles you grind, the hotter the dish; the remaining chiles are primarily for appearance). Process until ground or place ingredients in mortor and pestle and pound until a smooth consistency. This method results in greater flavour.

Heat wok over medium flame, add oil. Add the onion-shallot mixture and the curry powder and paste, cook stirring, until it begins to brown, 5 to 10
minutes. Add the coconut milk and remaining chiles, bring to a gentle boil, add the pork.

Adjust the heat so the mixture simmers and cook until the pork is cooked through, 10 to 15 minutes. Taste and add fish sauce to taste, add lime lime juice. Taste and adjust according to your taste.

Garnish and serve with steamed Jasmine rice.

You can make this curry paste and refrigerator a day or so before making the rest of the dish. Then you just heat, add the coconut milk and prawn/shrimp for a very quick meal.

Variation: Make this Talay style or mixed Seafood using scallops, mussels, calamari,and/or prawn/shrimp.
