Thai Yellow Curry Pork With Jasmine Rice

Thai style meals are a favourite in our family.  There is such a wide variety of dishes and flavours that come from this region.  The mixture of meat, rice, vegetables and sauce produce some amazing dishes that are really fairly quick and easy to make at home.  This meal falls into the easy to make category.  The key step here is preparation.  Ideally you will marinate the pork for at least an hour before cooking.

The juicy pork tenderloin is sliced into medallions and marinated in a fish sauce, coconut milk and Thai yellow curry paste marinade. After an initial browning of the pork on the stovetop, the pork is then mixed through with onion, pumpkin and snow peas and baked in the oven.  Also mixed through is Jasmine rice which soaks up the lovely yellow curry sauce as it bakes.  The curry is not like a thick gravy style, but still has a wonderful saucy burst of flavour that has blended beautifully through the moist Jasmine rice.  Serve with a coriander and chilli garnish.

This version has a mild heat level through the yellow curry paste and the chilli garnish.  You can easily ramp up the spiciness and heat through adding additional chilli powder to your preference.

You can easily substitute chicken or beef with this dish however, I think pork works perfectly with this meal.
