  • About

This very rich curry is best accompanied by lots of plain rice and perhaps a light vegetable dish. It could serve four if served with a vegetable curry. Asian stores sell pickled garlic. It is well worth investing in a jar, as the taste is sweet and delicious.


  • 130 g/ oz lean pork steaks
  • 30 ml/2


  1. Place the pork steaks in the freezer for 30–40 minutes, until firm, then, using a sharp knife, cut the meat into fine slivers, trimming off any excess fat.
  2. Heat the oil in a wok or large, heavy frying pan and cook the garlic over a low to medium heat until golden brown. Do not let it burn. Add the curry paste and stir it in well.
