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?
