You know the drill by now, time to get your mise en place sorted! Always make sure you prepare your ingredients before using them, so first of all slice up the onion into decent size wedges. Liz only had a brown onion at this time but, we suggest you use red onion, we find it has more flavour and really brings out the colours you are used to seeing in Thai dishes.

Another thing we love with Thai food is that it’s always very simple, unlike some cuisines like French cuisine that requires a lot more work and preparation, Thai food is quick, easy and fresh. Whether you’re in a hurry or just lazy it’s a perfect meal.

For the mise en place, chop up the chilli finely, use a grater to help you make a fine paste out of the ginger and finely chop the garlic. For the green beans make sure they are washed and have the ends cut off along with any bits that look damaged. Slice them into three and you’re ready to go !

TA-DA, you’re ready to start cooking, here is what your mise en place should look like once you finished preparing everything.

Cooking time for Thai food is often very short, so you can prepare before hand and just cook once you’re ready to eat as it will take less than 10 minutes. Heat up the oil and throw in the garlic, ginger, chillies and onion. Leave to cook for 1 to 2 minutes or until the aromas have been nicely released.

Add in the pork and leave to cook until brown. While you wait you can do a little dance because you’re really excited for what you’re about to eat .. or you can just stand and wait!

Once the pork is cooked (or you’re tired of dancing) add in the red curry paste and stir for about two minutes. Add in the beans, fish sauce, the juice of the lime, sugar and cook for another two minutes. Make sure the beans are nice and tender. Raw beans wouldn’t have BEEN delicious (c’mon, you giggled!)

Now that you are about to serve, you can decide if you want to have it on its own, with rice or take it a step further and have rice vermicelli as an alternative, which is what Liz picked. This is super simple and quick to make and definitely adds to the Thai cooking vibe. You can find them at any grocery store, just boil some water and add them in, cooking time can vary so check your packet!
