Recipe: Panang Curry with Beef (Panang Neua)

Panang Curry

Panang Curry with Beef (Panang Neua)

Ingredients:

1 Tbs Olive Oil (or Peanut Oil)
2 oz. Panang Curry Paste
1 Tbs Palm Sugar
1 tsp Lime Juice
12 oz. Beef (California Tri-Tip, Pork Fillet, or Tenderloin)
1 can Coconut Milk
2 Tbs Ground Peanuts (plus more for garnish)
1 tsp Dried Basil
1/2 tsp Fish Sauce (to taste)
Red Pepper Flakes (to taste)
Jasmine Rice

Instructions:

Slice beef incredibly thin and set aside. I use a serrated knife to do this. Heat oil in a high sided large skillet. Add curry paste, palm sugar, and lime juice. Stir and allow to reduce a little. Add beef and sear while mixing with the curry spice mix. Once beef is seared on all sides, add coconut milk, peanuts, and basil. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 20 minutes minimum. The longer it simmers, the better it tastes. While it is simmering, cook your jasmine rice according to the directions on the package. About 15 minutes before you dish up, add the fish sauce to the curry dish. To serve, put rice in a bowl, ladle beef and curry broth over rice. Top with additional peanuts and red pepper flakes.

This is also great as a chicken dish. Just swap beef out and replace with chicken.

Recipe: Apple Pear Pork Tenderloin

Apple Pear Pork Tenderloin

I wish I could lay claim to this recipe, I can’t. It came from the Costco cookbook “A Decade of Cooking the Costco Way”. But, this is such a delicious recipe, I felt I had to put it out for my readers to enjoy. I make this recipe often for my husband and I. We even made it while we visited my family and they all loved it too. So, I hope you love this recipe as much as we do. Oh, and because it serves so many, I usually half the recipe since there are just two of us (that eat solids like this).

Ingredients:
2 pork tenderloins
Salt and pepper
3 Tbs olive oil
3 shallots, sliced
3 garlic cloves, sliced
½ c dry white wine (or vegetable broth)
1 ½ c apple cider
3 Braeburn or Granny Smith apples, cored and cut into ⅛” slices (with skin)
2 Bosc pears, cored and cut into ⅛” slices (with skin)
3 Tbs butter

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 450°
  2. Season pork with salt and pepper to taste. Heat oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Add pork and sear on all sides. Add shallots and garlic; saute until tender, about 1-2 minutes. Add wine or broth and stir until deglazed. After the browned bits have surfaced, add cider, apples and pears; stir.
  3. Transfer all ingredients to a baking dish. Cover and bake for about 45-60 minutes, or until the internal temperature is 165-170°.
  4. Remove the pork from the pan and keep warm. Remove the apple and pear pieces from the pan with a slotted spoon and place in a bowl.
  5. Pour the sauce from the baking dish back into the frying pan, bring to a boil over medium-high to high heat, and cook until reduced by half. Whisk in butter. Add the apple and pear pieces, stirring gently.
  6. Place the pork on a serving dish and slice on the bias. Top with the apple-pear sauce. Makes 6-8 servings.
