👩🏻🍳 Crafting the Perfect Pork Curry in Four Simple Steps
Browning the Pork
- Begin by dicing the pork into bite-sized pieces and seasoning them with a pinch of salt and pepper.
- Heat a pan with oil until it shimmers, indicating it’s hot enough. Add the pork to the pan and sear it until all sides turn a beautiful golden brown.
Adding the Spices and Vegetables
- Once the pork has attained that perfect browning, introduce the chopped vegetables and aromatic spices to the pan.
- Continue cooking until the fragrance of the garlic fills the air and the vegetables begin to soften.
- Thoroughly coat the pork and vegetables with the aromatic spices, ensuring every morsel is fully infused with their flavors.
Making the Coconut Cream Sauce
- Pour the velvety coconut milk into the pan, allowing it to gently simmer.
- Incorporate the peanut butter, melting it into the sauce for a luscious, creamy texture.
- For an extra kick of heat, squeeze in some lime juice and sprinkle in a pinch of chili flakes.
Perfecting the Seasoning
Taste and adjust the seasoning to achieve the perfect balance of flavors. If desired, add additional spices or chili flakes to tantalize your taste buds further.
When it comes to storage, here’s what you need to know:
- Storage Directions: Once the pork curry has cooled down, transfer it to an airtight container and refrigerate. It will remain fresh for 3 to 4 days.
- Reheating: Retrieve the desired portion from the fridge and transfer it to a microwave-safe dish or saucepan. Cover loosely to prevent splattering, then reheat in the microwave or on the stovetop, stirring occasionally until thoroughly heated. Ensure that it reaches a safe internal temperature before indulging in its savory goodness.
- Freezing: If you plan to freeze the pork curry, allow it to cool completely before transferring it to airtight freezer-safe containers or bags. Don’t forget to label them with the date and contents. The curry can be frozen for up to 3 months.
- Thawing and Reheating: Remove the frozen pork curry from the freezer and thaw it overnight in the refrigerator. Once thawed, follow the reheating instructions mentioned earlier to restore its delightful flavors.
