Crispy Pork with Spinach

This one was delicious. AW bit salty, but so, so good – how can you go wrong with pork belly? The ingredients:

  • Oil
  • Pork belly, 2 lbs, thinly sliced
  • Spinach, about a bag worth, chopped
  • Kaffir lime leaves, 10
  • Sugar, 4 tablespoons
  • Fish sauce, 1/2 cup
  • Red curry paste, 6 tablespoons

The ingredients.


Not the same as bacon.

Not many ingredients in this one – but it has pork belly, and sometimes, that’s all you need. Cut it up like so, then fry it in the oil until the pork is crispy. Remove the bacon, get rid of the bacon grease, and melt some fresh oil in the pan.


But just as delicious.


Doesn’t it look good?

That didn’t take long! Then add the curry paste, mix it all together, and dump in all the other ingredients except for the lime leaves.


The spinach was a perfect complement.

Cook down for a while. THEN add in the kaffir lime leaves, as well as that already-crispy pork. And you’re done!


Don’t eat the lime leaves! You know what happens if you do.
