the clouds started rolling in yesterday, bringing with them promises of rain and much cooler weather.
fall is here. a change in the weather, a change in the leaves on the trees and a new season full of possibilities. this year, as always, i welcomed the arrival of fall with open arms and i like to usher in the new season with slow-cooking meals. now that i am (temporarily + very happily) unemployed, i am in no rush to get dinner on the table.
this meal came together with 3 ingredients. that's not a typo, 3.
1. can of coconut milk
2. can of green curry paste
3. a 2 lb. organic pork roast from local llano seco rancho
heat some coconut or olive oil in a dutch oven on med-hi heat. cut pork into 4 pieces. sear the chunks of pork to a lovely golden brown, just a few minutes on each side. add green curry paste and stir around, cooking for about 3 minutes. pour in coconut milk, bring to boil, cover and put in a 250 degree oven for 3.5 hours.
spoon the tender, tender pork over some rice, garnish with some cilantro, if you like, and enjoy.
the pork gets so tender, you could eat it with a spoon. it is creamy and lightly coconut-y from the coconut milk and is intensely and deliciously seasoned from the green curry paste. simple and so delicious.
