  • 1 Onion, sliced
  • 1 Can bamboo shoots, drained
  • 1 Can baby corn, drained
  • 8 Ounces Sliced mushrooms
  • 1 Cup Cauliflower florets
  • 2 Tablespoons Fish sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon Lemongrass powder
  • 1 Tablespoon Ginger, grated
  • 3 Cloves of garlic, minced
  • ¼ Cups Soy sauce (or more to taste)
  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Chop up all your veggies. You don't have to use what I have. You can use carrots, bell pepper, tomatoes, whatever you like really. These are just my favorites.

    Step 2

    Slice your pork chops thinly and pour the frozen shrimp out so they can begin thawing.

    Step 3

    Add your green curry paste to about 2tbsp canola oil and let it cook for about 30 seconds. I would have also added the garlic and ginger at this point but I forgot :(

    Step 4

    This is the kind I used. Where we live, we don't have an Asian market nearby. It stinks. We have to use what is available online or at Walmart.

    Step 5

    This is the ginger I always use. It's always fresh and ready to go. LOVE it!!!

    Step 6

    Add one can of the coconut milk. Stir to combine.

    Step 7

    Add the pork and stir to coat.

    Step 8

    Let simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

    Step 9

    Add vegetables and stir to coat.

    Step 10

    Simmer again for another 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

    Step 11

    Bring to a high simmer. Almost a boil. Stir frequently.

    Step 12

    Add half of the other can of coconut milk, soy sauce, fish sauce, and lemongrass. Stir to combine and simmer and let reduce for 30 minutes.

    Step 13

    This is the lemongrass powder I use. We don't have lemongrass available fresh where we are. This is a fair substitute.

    Step 14

    Let simmer for another 30 minutes to reduce. Stir occasionally.

    Step 15

    Add the shrimp and stir to coat. Let the shrimp heat through. I like my shrimp a little on the well done (firm) side.

    Step 16

    And done! There you have it. Serve over rice. We used jasmine. It was delicious.

    Step 17
