Pork Rib Thai Jungle Curry

Now, this dish is hot, hot, hot! This recipe is definitely not for those that don't like the heat... but for those of you who are still here - let's get started with this recipe!

The flavours extracted in this are truly addicting, despite the spice. However, those that have tried this dish have told me that even though it is spicy, the actual taste of the spice is delicious! Don't let my words deter you from trying this dish, I promise it is worth it... you'll know what I mean :)


How to Cook a Pork Rib Thai Jungle Curry


This recipe is very simple but it can take a while as it takes time to cook the pork rib bones. If you're in a hurry then swap the pork ribs out for other cuts of pork instead. There's not a lot of preparation that goes in to this dish except for chopping the ribs into chunks if you have purchased full sized ribs. To do this you need a strong and sharp knife, please do this with caution. Firmly chop down into the ribs using the lower side of the knife - the side nearer to the knife handle. This will give you better control when you are chopping. Repeat until all the ribs are 2-3 inches long. You are skip this step if the have bought ready chopped ribs.

Now on to the cooking! As I've already mentioned, it takes time to cook through the bones, so we need to start with this first. Fill a large pot with water, bring to a boil and add the chopped ribs. Lightly boil for 15 minutes and removed any foam that floats to the top. Meanwhile, heat some oil in a wok or saucepan on medium heat and stir fry Thai Jungle curry paste for 2 minutes. Add about 100ml of water to break the paste up and season the curry paste with fish sauce and palm sugar. Making sure everything with well mixed together and keep on a low simmer.

Now the pork ribs have been boiling for some time, gently transfer the ribs to the curry and add the remaining water. Give everything a good stir and bring the temperature to a light boil. Now cover and allow to cook for about 30 minutes. You can also add some fresh kaffir lime leaves at this stage, do this by tearing the leaves up leaving the middle stem out. After some time, turn off the heat and throw in some more kaffir lime leaves, mint leaves and fresh chillies before serving up into bowls and enjoying with freshly steamed Thai Jasmine rice!
