Red Curry Pork with Peppers

Another post that I have had queued up for a couple of months to finish off and publish, is this delicious curry, from the Curry Bible that I got last Christmas… Red Curry Pork with Peppers.

As the author writes, it is a delightful combination of succulent pork, mushrooms and sweet red peppers. The mushrooms act as sponges, soaking up all the coconut sauce beautifully.

Pork with Mixed Green Beans

Having had a Curry recipe book given to me for Christmas, I thought it was about time to try a quick one after a long day in the office. Having all the ingredients apart from the Galangal, I popped by the shops on the way home to pick some up. It was very easy to prepare and cook and tasted great!

This is what the book said about it…
“Quick and convenient, this tasty Thai-style pork curry uses a mixture of different beans and envelopes them in a spicy sauce enriched with peanuts.”
