Pork Tenderloin with Noodles, Red Curry & Mint
Pork tenderloin with red curry and mint is a flavorful and aromatic Thai-inspired dish that combines tender pork with a deliciously spicy and tangy red curry sauce.
The texture of the dish perfectly balances tender, juicy pork, crisp-tender vegetables, and soft, chewy noodles. The sauce is coating each ingredient with its bold, spicy flavor.
The flavors are complex and satisfying, with a rich, savory umami from the soy sauce, a sweet, floral note from the honey, and a fiery kick from the red curry paste. The fresh mint leaves provide a cooling contrast to the heat of the curry, making it a perfectly balanced and satisfying meal.
Pork Loin with Red Curry and Mint
- Cut the pork into strips then fry in a hot pan with a little oil.
- When it starts to brown, add the diced vegetables together with the curry paste and soy sauce.
- When the vegetables are cooked but still crunchy, add the honey and finely chopped mint, then remove the pan from the heat.
- Cook the rice noodles for 3-4 minutes in salted boiling water, then drain and rinse quickly.
- Mix the rice noodles with the meat and vegetables or serve as in the picture.
