With a blend of warm red curry paste, sweet coconut milk, and a dash of tang from lime, this Red Curry Coconut Pork had me picking bits out of the pan to taste before I even snapped a picture.

Not really sure where I was headed when I tossed this pork tenderloin in my cart. Apparently, I was somewhere between wanting grill season to kick off and vibrant flavors of Asian cuisine to lure me into a food coma. 

A blend of warm red curry paste, sweet coconut milk, and a dash of tang from lime. It came to a harmonious agreement of sweet and savory that had me picking bits out of the pan to taste before I even snapped a picture… And then picking a few more out before serving…

And I ended up shoving a few more bites into my pie hole after I was done and swore couldn’t eat another bite. Yeah, it is that good.

Pro tip: pack your lunch before serving this to the family to guarantee yourself leftovers tomorrow.

Or later tonight. Who’s judging?

    1. I would boil it just to be on the safe side. If you use a can of coconut milk, there’s enough to marinate the pork and create a separate dish for the sauce later if you like.

  1. It is awesome swag! The first kabob I would make would be something with lamb – maybe Greek inspired.
