Spicy Thai Red Curry Pork Ribs

Spicy Thai Red Curry Pork Ribs

My partner Ray, loves pork ribs so much. He would order it when he sees it on any restaurant’s menu and it’s probably also one of the few things that he can cook at home. After several failed attempts he managed to get the hang of it and has been consistently making stunning barbecue pork ribs. This momentum has snowballed after he successfully wowed everyone at a friend’s housewarming party by bringing a container of homemade barbecue pork ribs. Turns out everyone loves pork ribs and a few of them even went for the second round.

That fantastic evening just gave him an idea – he wants to do some experiments on cooking pork ribs with various sauces. I agree to his idea right away as I believe that pork ribs don’t have to be cooked with only barbecue sauce to be the crowd’s favourite. It would be fun!

For each successful experiment we will keep the recipe as our repertoire, if it’s not we will learn why the recipe doesn’t work and tweak a few things.

So here goes my first recipe creation, Spicy Thai Red Curry Pork Ribs.

Spicy Thai Red Curry Pork Ribs

I found a can of red curry paste sitting in my pantry which gave me an idea of making the ribs similar to Pad Prik Khing. Pad Prik Khing is basically a type of Thai curry which is dry as it is fried with hot oil and doesn’t use coconut milk. In my vision I want the ribs to still be charred outside and juicy inside, similar to cooking American ribs, and served with a thick red curry sauce instead of drowning in the curry so this will turn out to be a bit similar to Pad Prik Khing.

How to make Japanese Curry Better

Japanese curry is my go-to meal during the colder months. It ticks a lot of boxes- very very easy to make, budget-friendly, delicious, versatile, can feed a lot of people, one-pot meal, very comforting and great as left-overs. It's very rarely that a meal can have that many of benefits. That's why it's not weird that this is the meal that I cook very often, at least once a month especially during ... read more

Braised Beef Cheek with Parsnip Puree and Parsnip Chips

I've always known beef cheek as one of the most frequently used cut of meat in a pot-roast or slow-cooker but I had never tried it before. It wasn't until a few years ago when I was eating out with my partner in an Italian restaurant and beef cheek ragu pasta was on their menu. Just as the legend said, the meat was indeed very tender and flavourful given that it was braised for long hours. On ... read more

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms in the world! It really sucks being 4000 miles apart from home and not being able to spend Mother's day with my mom directly for 8 years in a row. I normally just text or call her every Mother's day just to thank her for being the best mom for all of four of us siblings. It's certainly not easy trying to be there for all her children and still coping with her ... read more

I'm back! After a few months of hiatus, I'm finally back in the blogging world. I was studying CPA since February this year and just finished the exam last week. Just hoping that I did enough and be able to pass the subject otherwise the sacrifice of abandoning this blog for three months would be in vain. I still did some cooking during those times and posted some of the dishes on my instagram, ... read more

Easy Kakiage Mixed Vegetable Tempura

Ever since I'm back from my trip in Japan, I have been constantly craving all the foods that we were eating there. The foods were fantastic, it's pretty rare to find bad food in Japan simply because all the chefs there really take their cooking seriously, not only in fine-dining restaurants but street food or fast food joints as well. One of the most memorable dishes for me was this kakiage ... read more

It's the beginning of February now, which just means one thing here in Australia - summer is STILL around. We've still got only one more month before the temperature starts to plunge and make it impossible to roam outside and leave us no choice but to stay indoor and watch reality show. Seriously though, what's up with all these reality shows, for some unknown reason people are SO addicted ... read more

I don't know if it's just me, but different seasons of the year kind of have an effect to my choice of foods and cuisines. In the winter I normally crave a lot of western comfort food - like casseroles, lasagna, creamy soup. During this time it's not abnormal for me to gain at least 2-3 kgs. Then comes spring, where the weather gets warmer and so the clothing gets thinner, and I'm usually very ... read more

Happy New Year 2016! I can't believe it's been over than a month since the last post. I just realized this when I checked my blog again earlier this week that there wasn't any post at all in December. Oh well. If I am allowed to give any excuse, I was probably a little bit too excited about the holiday that I had with my family (check out my Instagram for virtual tour of my trip) and don't you ... read more

Since it's only a month before I'm going away to meet my family in the exotic place of Bali, I committed myself that I would lose a few pounds of my weight before the big reunion, I want to avoid being mentioned that I gained weight, and also just so I can be confident again to wear a bikini. Trust me, ever since I have a blog, maintaining it means I am nearer to food than I will ever be, and ... read more
