This week's French Friday with Dorie challenge sweeps us away to the tropics - perhaps to New Caledonia or some other French colony where the palm trees sway, the ocean is blue and life is good. Ahhh .... now where were we? That's right - back to reality.
The dish is coconut lemongrass-braised pork, which has a definite Asian influence. It is a type of pork stew, whereby cubed pork is braised in coconut milk infused with lemongrass, turmeric and various other spices.
What I liked about this dish is that it was warm and filling - terrific for winter. What I didn't like that much was the coconut milk, which made it a little bland. Oh well - it was OK, just not one I will make again.
