crispy Thai pork with green curry
Well, by now you all know how much I love Thai food and this recipe just continues to fuel my love for the cuisine. The time stamp on the recipe might look like it takes a long time, but it’s a lot of inactive cooking and just hanging around which makes it an ideal dish for a dinner party. Not only can it feed a crowd, but because it doesn’t require much work, it leaves you free to mingle and sip on a cocktail. A nice large piece of pork is slowly roasted until tender and then you crank the heat up while basting the outside with a flavorful sauce of coconut milk, kaffir lime, thai chili, brown sugar and fish sauce which creates a crust as the pork cooks and leaves the inside tender and moist. You could serve the pork with any color of curry sauce you prefer (I love them all), I just chose green because I hadn’t used it in a bit. The brine is super important in this recipe because it flavors the pork all the way through, so try and brine overnight, if possible. This was one of the tastiest recipes I’ve made recently and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Happy cooking!
