Thai Ground Pork in Coconut Milk

We’d like to provide you with an alternative to ground beef or turkey for a change  – PORK. We love wonderful lean local pork as you know in just about any form.  Please give our Thai inspired dish a try, it’s fast and very easy and super healthy. We served it here with some yellow Cauliflower rice. Heat up the rice in a cast iron pan add about 1 tsp or so of butter, ghee or coconut oil, lightly salt and allow to warm – serve with your new recipe below. It’s really light and very satisfying, even for breakfast.
Here are your ingredients:
  • 1 cup of Aroy-d 100% coconut milk (no stabilizers or preservatives)
  • 4-6 fresh Thai Chilies, chopped and seeds in
  • 1 tablespoon peeled and minced fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 pound ground pork (try to look for local)
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 bunch chopped fresh cilantro leaves
Easy Directions:
Put the coconut milk, chilies, ginger, 3/4 of the cilantro, and garlic in a medium saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil.
Stir in the pork and adjust the heat so the mixture continues to simmer steadily. Cook, stirring, until pork is cooked through, about 3 minutes more. Now stir in the fish sauce and salt and pepper if necessary. Remove from heat and transfer to a serving bowl; garnish with leftover cilantro and serve.
It doesn’t get any easier that this! Whip some up for you and your family tonight. Enjoy ~ Henry & Jo

    A-MAY-ZING 😉
    Seriously one of the best recipes Ive found online. Super fast and easy. Great weekday meal when you’re pressed for time but hungry for something delicious.

    I used red chillies, doubled the ginger and added broccoli when I didn’t have any fresh cilantro.

    Thank you for this!

    Made it with turkey since that was all we had on hand on a rainy night. Very good. Very, very easy! I can make this during the week. Next time I am going to try the broccoli.

    Making this right now. Typing this as I wait for the coconut to boil. Am adding ground lemongrass and vidalia onion (need to use it and usually add onion to my dishes). Also had to substitute chili powder for Thai chilis but I think it will work. Serving over brown basmati rice and can’t wait to eat this!
