Serves 2

  • ¼ cup panang curry paste (see recipe)*
  • 1.5 tsp sugar
  • 1-2 tsp fish sauce
  • ¾ cup coconut milk
  • 8 oz thinly sliced pork tenderloin or other protein of your choice
  • 3 kaffir lime leaves, torn into chunks
  • 2 kaffir lime leaves, very thinly sliced for garnish
  • 2 Tbsp coconut milk for garnish**
  • Spur chilies or other types of  mild red chilies, sliced into rounds for garnish

Recipe Notes:

*If you are using store bought curry paste, you may need a little less (~3 Tbsp) depending on the brand. You will also need to add 2 tablespoons of ground roasted peanuts to your curry when using store bought curry paste.

**When you let coconut milk sit, the fatty part usually floats to the top. This thick, fatty coconut milk is great for using as garnish, so don’t stir your coconut milk until you have spooned out some! I forgot to do this for the video…sadly.


Sauté the curry paste in some vegetable oil until aromatic, and deglaze with 1/4 cup of the coconut milk. Note: Traditionally, we sauté the curry paste in rendered coconut oil. See more information about this method in Massaman Curry and Green Curry videos.

Add the 3 torn kaffir lime leaves and let the mixture cook, stirring constantly, until the coconut milk dries up again.

Once the coconut milk dries up, add the pork to the pan and toss to coat the pork thoroughly in the curry paste. Add the remaining 1/2 cup of coconut milk, fish sauce, and sugar. Let cook until the pork is done. When the pork is done, remove from heat immediately.

To serve: pour the curry on to a deep plate or a shallow bowl, spoon the 2 Tbsp of coconut milk over the top for garnish. Top with thinly sliced kaffir lime leaves and spur chili slices. Serve with hot jasmine rice!
