Thai Pork with Spicy Green Beans

Ingredients

3/4 lb. green beans, trimmed and cut into 2-inch lengths
1 Tbsp. sesame oil
2 Tbsp. grapeseed (or vegetable) oil
3 Tbsp. prik king curry paste (or use any red curry paste, such as panang, massaman, or regular “red”)
1lb. boneless pork loin, very thinly sliced crosswise into 2-inch strips
1/2 c. fat free chicken broth
2 Tbsp. fish sauce
1 Tbsp. palm sugar (or brown sugar)
4 wild lime leaves*, halved (or serve with lime wedges)

Preparation

1
Bring a pot of water to a boil and toss in your green beans. Let cook for about 3 minutes, then strain and rinse with cold water.
2
Heat the sesame and grapeseed oil over medium-low in a large skillet. Add in the curry paste and stir for 2-3 minutes until the paste is well combined with the oil. Use the back of a wooden spoon to work the two together.
3
Turn the heat up to medium-high and add the pork strips. Stir the pork around to evenly coat in curry paste for a minute or two, then add in the broth, fish sauce, wild lime leaves (if using), and palm sugar. Stir well to combine.
4
Add the green beans to the pan and saute for another 3 minutes.
5
Serve with lots of jasmine rice!
