Want something spicy, hearty and easy for dinner? Pull out your slow cooker and make this five-ingredient green curry pork. (OK, it’s seven ingredients if you include salt and pepper.) It takes 15 minutes to set up, and you end up with a tender, rich and spicy pork curry.
The secret ingredient is Thai green curry paste. Look for Maesri curry paste at nearly any Asian market. It’s a staple in my kitchen. Fry a bit with coconut milk, add meat and stew. Ta-da! Restaurant-style green curry. My husband is always overjoyed when I make something with this magical little can.
Until recently, I had never used curry paste in the slow cooker. It works really well – all that time helps the paste slowly infuse the meat and sauce with its spicy, pungent flavor.
This curry gives you tender braised pork that can be eaten with a spoon, along with equally tender and creamy potatoes. The sauce itself isn’t very thick; serve it with a ladle or big spoon, letting it soak into plenty of rice.
