Pork Thai Jungle Curry with Green Beans

pork Thai Jungle Curry with Green beans and fresh mint in a white bowl, authentic, traditional, Thai jungle paste, Mae Jum  
Pork Thai Jungle Curry with Green Beans and Fresh Mint

This dish is definitely one for the hot spice lovers, a huge favourite with my Son. Thai Jungle curry is traditionally cooked with water, so there is no hiding behind any coconut milk this time. Even though it HOT, I promise you there are gorgeous flavours. Give it a go! 

This pork Thai Jungle curry recipe doesn't require many ingredients, just your chosen protein, today I went for pork tenderloin, green beans and some fresh mint. Extremely simple recipe, you can have this whipped up and served in 20 minutes and that's including prep!

Simply trim the end of the green beans and cut roughly them in half. Thinly slice the pork tenderloin and then cook everything in a pot or wok. Then wash the fresh mint under cold water just before serving it on the side or gently mix it in. It really is that simple.

If Jungle curry is too spicy for you or your friends, try adding a bit of coconut milk when you are cooking. I would recommend using 300ml water and 100ml coconut milk for a milder version of this dish. It will still be relatively spicy, just not "call 999" type of spicy!
