Red Curry Pork Chop with Purple Potatoes and Snap Peas tossed in a Thai Ginger butter

Hello People!

This is my 30 minute meal for the day, after working a 12 hr shift …… all I want is to eat a good meal, not some rubbish from a fast food joint. Also it is to be fast and easy….well this is something I whipped up tonight and wanted to share with you all. the rub in this meal takes the most time, but my secret is to actually put all the ingredients in a mortar or use a robocoupe, im lucky enough to own the bullet which works great.


1 pork chop

1 tsp minced ginger

1 tsp minced lemon grass

1 tsp minced cilantro

1 tsp minced garlic

1 tsp Kaffir Lime

1 tsp Lime Juice

1/8 tsp minced Thai Chili

Salt and pepper to taste

and the braising liquid is your basic store-bought 2 Tbls red curry base and 1/4 cup coconut milk.

Mix all the minced ingredients to gether. salt and pepper the chop to taste. smear 1/2 the minced mixture all over the chop. pan sear on both sides for 4 minutes each on medium heat. make sure to not burn it. add the red curry paste and coconut milk and lower heat to medium low, cover and braise for 15 minutes.

Potatoes and snap peas

3 med purple potatoes

handful of snap peas

3 tbls of soft butter
