  • Total Time: 0 hours


  • 1 can (4 oz.) Massaman curry paste
  • 1/2 pound pork, sliced into thin strips
  • 1 small/medium onion, sliced
  • 2 medium potatoes, diced
  • 2 cans coconut milk
  • Optional: 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • Optional: 1/4 roasted peanuts, chopped
  • Vegetable oil for cooking


  1. Heat a couple of tablespoons of oil over medium-high heat. Add curry paste, smushing a bit to break up. Add pork and onions. Cook for a couple of minutes, stirring periodically. You’re not trying to thoroughly cook them, just get them started.
  2. Add coconut milk, potatoes, brown sugar, and peanuts (if using). Bring to a boil, then reduce heat. Simmer for about 20 minutes, or until potatoes are tender.
  3. Serve over coconut rice!
