Thank God It's Friday....:) yay..it is French Fridays With Dorie again ! Today's dish is Coconut-Lemongrass-Braised Pork and I managed to cook this to perfection. The meat was tender and juicy and the braised sauce was packed with flavors from the coconut milk, turmeric powder, coriander seeds, white pepper seeds, ground black pepper , sea salt , cardamoms and lemongrass. Lovely dish and I will definitely cook this again when the Piggies are back for their break. This will surely perk them up...something nice, a french dish on my table:)
I do not own a dutch oven ( this is what I will like add to my kitchen ...a good one costs a bomb here) so I used a claypot instead to slowly braised the meat till tender before adding in the coconut milk...it turned out just as good as using a dutch oven to cook this dish. I like it to have a more yellowish color to it so I added a wee bit more of the turmeric powder.
ingredients consists pork butt ( you can use chicken if you like )
the spices used are turmeric powder, cardamoms,
coriander seeds, white and black pepper, lemongrass and coconut milk
potatoes, carrots and red onions and
that is my favorite claypot.....:)
I added a bit more of the turmeric so it gives a
more yellowish color to my braised dish :)
this can be taken with steamed basmati rice.....
or asian flatbread or french bread
WB and myself took a big portion of rice
because it was so flavorful ....... YUM!!
Have a great weekend !
