Thai Minced Pork Curry

Thai Minced Pork Curry

Unlike the first three years of writing this blog, I no longer only cook Indian food. In fact I’ve been experimenting with Thai, Mexican, Chinese, German and American food for many years.

Today I’d like to show you one of the easiest and tastiest curries I know. This can literally be made in under 20 minutes.It’s awesome served simply over boiled egg noodles.

I have a really nice Thai red chilli paste recipe for you but I haven’t had the time to type it up yet. Watch this space as I’ll be adding it to the blog soon. To be honest, their are some really good commercial brands around so it you don’t want to go to the hassle of making your own, you should still be able to make this.

I would be interested to hear from you whether or not you would like me to post other curries from around the world. I’ve focussed so long on Indian, I’m considering branching out a bit and giving you a few more of my favourites outside India.

This looks great - we love pork mince. It's on the list for the weekend. I would love to see some Malaysian curry recipes if you have any?

Hi Dan, orsm website, just bought the book, great work keep it going! Have tried several Indian curries of yours and tried this one too and loved it, my better half thought it was too salty. Should I have simmered it for a few minutes after adding the fish and soy sauce and lime maybe to mellow the salt taste? Cheers Stu

Hi Stu

Thank you very much. If you found it too salty, use less soy sauce. It shouldn't taste salty at all but some soy sauces can be saltier than others. Thanks, Dan

Thanks for this recipe. I had pork mince in the fridge and fancied something different but at the last minute! The result was perfect especially considering how quick and easy it was. My fiancee loved it (he knows his curries) and now thinks I'm a culinary goddess! A fabulous recipe that stood out amongst the many many other pork mince recipies I have tried. Loved that it was a curry as an alternative. Delicious!

So I have no idea if you still read these replies or where you are I also never write reviews, comments etc but I had to after eating this!! I'm from Sheffield, England and have just cooked this for my husband who is home on R&R from the Forces (Royal Navy). He has declared this as the nicest thing I've ever cooked him!! It was so easy and I have to say I was sceptical as there was so few ingredients but it was genuinely delicious! Please don't take this as criticism but at the end I did add a but of Sriracha Thai sauce just for a little added kick, maybe you could try it and let me know what you think of my palate? ☺

Thank you for the amazing recipe!!

Thank you very much Jill. I'm really glad you and your husband liked the recipe. I'll keep them coming. Thanks for the suggestion too. Next time, I'll give the Sriracha Thai sauce a go!

Cheers, Dan
