Thai Food Moo Ma-Nao [Boiled Pork With Lime, Garlic and Chilli Sauce]

I just can't resist this kind of dish, that is savoury, sourish, spicy and sweet.  Best of all, no frying at all.  Also like the idea of adding Chinese kale.  Was lucky to get it [not too big size] at the wet market today as I intend to prepare a smaller portion.  Also used the blanching the vegetable and meat as stock for my vegetable soup.
Should have prepared the full portion cos' it was awesome.
original recipe from Thai Food Recipe
[serves 3]
300 gm pork tenderlion - thinly sliced 
1 stem Chinese kale - peel the skin and cut slantwise [can use Kailan stems]
some cherry tomatoes - for garnishing [optional]
Lime, Garlic and Chilli Sauce - combine together
2 tbsp minced garlic
5-10 chillies - chopped [I used 2-3 small red chilli]
1 tbsp chopped coriander leaves [keep some leaves for garnishing]
1 tbsp each light soy sauce and sugar
2 tbsp fish sauce
3-5 tbsp lime juice [I used calamansi lime juice]

1.   Combine sauce ingredients in a small bowl.  Taste to adjust according to your preference.
2.    Bring small water to boil, add in kale to cook.  Dish out onto serving plate.
3.   Use the same water, add in the sliced meat.  Scald until cooked through.  Dish out onto cooked kale.
4.    Pour sauce over cooked ingredients, garnish with coriander leaves.
5.    Serve with rice.

Kimmy, the marinade sounds like something we would use for steaming fish. Looks delicious and also very attractive!

Kimmy said...

Hi Soke Hah, yes no fats too [except from the meat].

Kimmy said...

Hi Phong Hong, quite similar ingredients, maybe the combination is a bit different and no oil added.
