Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Thai Pork Salad With Lemongrass Rice

Bash the lemongrass with a rolling pin to release the juices and add it to a pot (you may have to cut it to fit) with the rice and 350ml (700ml) water 

Bring to the boil over a high heat

Once boiling, reduce the heat to very low, cover and cook for 10-15 min or until the water has absorbed and the rice is tender

2 Thai Pork Salad With Lemongrass Rice

Meanwhile, peel and finely slice the red onion(s)

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) vegetable oil over a medium-high heat

Once hot, add the onion with a big pinch of both salt and sugar (use brown sugar if you have it!)

Cook for 4 min or until slightly softened

3 Thai Pork Salad With Lemongrass Rice

Add the curry paste and cook for a few seconds 

Add the pork mince and cook for 5-8 min or until the pork is starting to crisp

 

4 Thai Pork Salad With Lemongrass Rice

Meanwhile, chop off and discard the root end(s) of the lettuce and separate the leaves 

Tip: By chopping off the base first, your leaves should separate easier

5 Thai Pork Salad With Lemongrass Rice

Chop the roasted peanuts roughly

 

 

6 Thai Pork Salad With Lemongrass Rice

Cut the lime(s) in half

Fluff the cooked rice and squeeze in the juice of half a (whole) lime

Cut the remaining lime into wedges
