Method

  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan or flameproof casserole. Add the spring onions and coriander stalks and cook for 1 min. Add the pork slices and cook for 5 mins until starting to brown.
  2. Stir in the curry paste and peanut butter. After 30 secs, add the sugar, soy and coconut milk, plus ½ can of water. Mix well, put a lid on and leave to simmer for 15 mins, stirring occasionally.
  3. Remove the lid, add the baby corn and increase the heat. Bubble for 3 mins until the corn is cooked and the sauce has thickened a little. Stir in the lime juice and check the seasoning. Can now be frozen for up to 2 months. To cook from frozen: thoroughly defrost, then heat in a pan on the hob until curry is hot all the way through. Serve scattered with the coriander leaves and rice.

Simple and delicious

Loved this recipe, it was creamy and had a good flavour. I used a jar of red curry paste that was lurking in my fridge but felt it needed some extra chilli to give a little more heat. Next time I will use my own homemade paste. My husband always turns his nose up at recipes that include peanut butter so I forgot to mention that this had peanut butter in it. Surprise, surprise he loved it. Will definitely be making this again

I used Quorn chicken instead of pork, which needed a little less time. It worked really well. A very tasty recipe I’ll make again.

The whole family loved this, one that i will definately make again. I added peas, mushrooms and sweet corn to bulk it out a bit, and it was delicious :-)

I was really looking forward to this because it has a lot of my favourite ingredients in it but it was rather thin and runny. Maybe I had the wrong expectations (or maybe I just cooked it wrong!). All the kids liked it though which is a plus, especially as we're going to Thailand soon.

Having never tried cooking Thai food before I decided to give this recipe a go. Made my own Thai red curry paste (1st time for that as well) and everyone in the family loved it. The recipe was easy to follow and had it made quicker than if I had ordered in. Will certainly be trying out more Thai recepies in the future. A big thumbs up from me.

One of my children cannot tolerate peanuts but can eat other nuts - can anyone suggest a suitable replacement? Thanks

This was delicious and easy to make. I prepared using chicken rather than pork.

I found the ingredients for coriander and onions vague. I would suggest about 1-1/2 cups coriander and 5 springs onions (rather than saying "bunch".

I am also not a fan of baby corn and will next time substitute with mushrooms and red pepper.

Great dish with lots of flavour. Very easy to make and freezes well. I served with rice noodles and used crunchy peanut butter for added texture. Will definitely make again.
