Easy Thai Pork

Easy Thai pork and spinach Curry, born out of necessity for something warm and delicious, yet very quick to prepare.

Some times, recipes just work, planets align and the result is way more than you ever intended. So it was with this Easy Thai Pork and Spinach curry. Not exactly a hot curry, but it was warm and fragrant, so for us it worked.

Easy Thai Pork

Thai curries can be very hot, but this time I just wanted the flavors like lemongrass, ginger, garlic and coconut to shine, so the curry element was on the back ground. so by all means, if you want to make a hot and spicy Easy Thai Pork and Spinach Curry, just add a big spoonful of green curry paste and you will love it.  Feel free to serve it on Jasmin or Basmati rice, we enjoyed it in bowls with chopped coriander and toasted, salted cashew nuts. Delicious.

Remove the pork meat from the casings and shape each sausage into 3 meatballs. Heat the oil in a wok or big pan and brown the little meatballs. Remove the meatballs from the wok and keep warm. Add the ginger, garlic and lemongrass to the pan and saute for a few seconds. Add the chilies, coconut cream, stock and green curry paste. Cook and taste until you are happy with the flavor. Add the meatballs to the curry sauce and cook for about 5 minutes. Lastly add the spinach and stir through. You want the spinach to just wilt into the sauce, do not overcook. Serve on basmati with added chopped coriander and chopped salted cashew nuts.
