Thai At Home

Tonight we made Thai Pork Salad from Southern Living.

It's very similar to the Thai Pork Noodle dish we made from Smitten Kitchen that we adore.

A little time consuming but tasty. Adam overdid it on the ginger so it was a little spicy for me but it was so good.

Thai Pork Salad

1 lb. lean ground boneless pork chops, grind yourself or buy ground
Cook the pork in a skillet until browned.

In a bowl mix

1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro

1/4 cup chopped fresh mint leaves

3 green onions finely chopped

1 tsp. minced fresh ginger

1/2 tsp. ground red pepper

1/2 cup lime juice (this was too much, it was too tart so we had to add some sugar)

1 T fish sauce (we used Hoisin)

1 tsp. sesame oil

Add the cooked cooled pork to this mixture.

In another bowl, toss 1 package of broccoli slaw with the following

1/4 cup rice wine vinegar

2 T lite soy sauce

1 T olive oil - we used sesame

(we needed to double this, it didn't make enough sauce for all of the broccoli slaw)

Slice some cucumber to place around the plate.

Pile the broccoli slaw mixture on the plate and top with the pork mixture. Serve with rice or asian noodles. We also topped with more cilantro and crushed peanuts.
