Red Lamb Curry

Submitted by: KDKOSMO

Introduction

From a Thai cookbook given to me. I actually lightened it up a little from what the cookbook states by using less oil, less meat and making this 6 servings instead of 4.

Tips

Original recipe called for 2 Tbsp of oil, I used 1 tsp.

Original recipe called for 1lb 2oz of leg of lamb, I used 1 lb exactly.

Recipe called for brown sugar, I subbed coconut palm sugar instead.


Directions

Trim lamb meat and cut into 1" cubes. Heat oil in a large skillet or wok over high heat. Add the onion and garlic and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes to soften. Add the meat and stir-fry the mixture quickly until lightly browned.

Stir in the curry paste and cook for a few seconds. Then add the coconut milk and sugar and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Stir in the bell pepper, stock, fish sauce, and lime juice, then cover and simmer an additional 15 minutes or until the meat is tender.

Add the water chestnuts, cilantro and basil and season to taste with salt & pepper if desired. Transfer to serving plates, then garnish with basil leaves and serve with jasmine rice (rice not in meal calculations).

Serving Size: divide evenly into 6 servings

Number of Servings: 6
