Burmese Pork Curry

I got home from work less than an hour ago, and dinner is almost cooked and ready to serve, and all I've done is stir a half dozen ingredients, all ready to hand, into a saucepan and left to simmer away. But how?

Getting home from work can cause even the most devoted cook to moan and groan about now having to cook dinner for the family, and that's why we all need those easy recipes that require little effort or thought.

Luckily this easy Burmese Pork Curry fits the bill, and will please both cook and family with its ease (no chopping or cutting!) and it’s delicious, rich flavour.

What Will I Need?

400ml can coconut milk
2 tbs red curry paste
1 tbs fish sauce
1 tbs sugar
500g Pork (stirfry style)
2 tsp chilli
Juice of half a lime
2 tbs peanut butter

What now?

1.      Into a saucepan let’s start with the coconut milk, curry paste, fish sauce and sugar.

2.      Stir all the ingredients thoroughly and bring to the boil.

3.      Once boiling, add your pork, chilli, lime juice and peanut butter.

4.      Return to the boil, then pop on a lid, turn the heat to low, and pop over to the lounge, turn on the tele, and watch the evening news.

5.      After an hour has passed, remove the lid from the saucepan and continue to let simmer in order for the sauce to thicken (approximately 15 minutes).

6.      In a separate saucepan, make some rice according to the instructions.

7.      After 15 minutes when the rice is cooked, serve up your wonderful Burmese Pork Curry with Rice.

A wonderful dish that wasn’t really that hard at all, was it?
