Panang Curry (แพนง)

Panang Curry (แพนง)

I'm not sure why it took a backpacking trip through North and South Thailand to get me hooked on Thai food, but it certainly did the trick. My favorite food for the past decade continues to be Thai, and I'm especially partial to authentic Thai curries, in particular the Panang curry.

Makes 2 -4 servings  -


12 oz. Sliced Chicken Breast
1 Can Coconut Milk
2 tablespoons ground Peanuts
1 tablespoon sugar
Thinly sliced Kafflir Lime Leaf
1/2 to 1 teaspoone Fish Sauce (to taste)
4 - 5 Thai Basil Leafs
2 oz. Panang Curry Paste ( more if you like the heat)
1/2 Red Bell Pepper
1/2 Green Bell Pepper
Pinch ground Red Chili (to taste)

Heat sauce pan over medium heat. Add small amount of olive or peanut oil. Add Curry, lime leaf and Sugar 
in the pan. As they reduce, add Chicken.  Sear chicken while mixing with curry spices. Add Coconut Milk. Bring to near 
boil, then simmer. Add peanuts. The longer you simmer the better. Minimum 15 to 20 minutes, several hours if time permits. 
Add bell peppers about 15 minutes before serving along with fish sauce.

Recipe from “Thai Home Cooking from Kamolmal's Kitchen”, by William
Crawford & Kamolmal Pootaraksa

Sateh Pork and Moo-Sateh

 Sateh Pork

Satay is a great barbeque food and fun to eat. Cook Satay sticks right along with your barbeque chicken or hamburger. 

This is an easier, and tastier method for making satay than people generally use in Thailand. For some reason the style commonly found on the street there has migrated to using condensed milk, but I prefer it this way. This satay version has fewer, easier to find ingredients and does not compromise the taste.

1 teaspoon sugar  
1 teaspoon salt  
1 lb                 pork  
2 tablespoons curry powder  
1/2 cup coconut milk bamboo skewer  

Soak bamboo skewers at least half an hour so that the ends do not burn on the grill. Slice the pork into thin strips (about 1/4 of an inch thick) that will fit onto the skewers. Marinade the pork and curry powder, sugar, coconut milk and salt for the same amount of time that you soak the skewers (I do both at the same time). For a shorter marinade time, I massage all the seasonings into the sliced pork for a couple minutes. 

Thread the pork onto the bamboo skewers. When you get the skewers at a restaurant, the meat is normally stretched out flat. While this looks nice and makes economical sense for restaurants, I find that stuffing the skewers gives me a moister, tastier result that is tenderer than when it is stretched tight. 

In Thailand, the satay is grilled on a rectangular, narrow charcoal grill that fits just one row of satay. The charcoal has been burning for a while. It is hot, but not flaming. There should be white ashes covering the charcoal so that the satay can be cooked evenly without burning. 

Grill and serve with peanut sauce and cucumber in vinegar.



 - 2 lb Beef; thinly sliced 1 c Peanut butter
 -3 tb curry powder 1 c coconut cream
 - 1/2 ts Ground chilies 1 tb lemon juice
 - 2 garlic clove; minced 1/4 c Soy sauce
 -2 Onion large; minced 1 tb Worcester sauce
 -4 tb lemon juice 2 x Tabasco sauce; dash
 -1 tb Honey 1/4 ts salt

Slice the meat into thin strips no more than 1/4" thick and about 1" wide.
Make strips paper-thin if possible.
Mix curry powder chilies garlic onions salt lemon juice and honey in a large bowl.
Add the meat strips and toss well to cover with the marinade.

Thread meat strips on bamboo skewers 3 or 4 pieces per skewer.
Make sure that plenty of Onion and garlic bits cling to the meat.
Arrange skewers of meat in a dish cover with any remaining marinade and refrigerate while making the sauce.
Brown or grill the meat skewers and serve with the warmed Peanut butter sauce for dipping.
Sauce: Blend all ingredients together well to make a smooth sauce.
Keep refrigerated but warm before serving.

Yum neau

Yum neau (ยำเนื้อ)

8 ounces, weight Beef Steak
¼ cups Soy Sauce
1 Tablespoon Canola Oil
2 cups Salad Greens
1 whole Small Cucumber
½ whole Onion Sliced (red Would Be Pretty)
½ cups Bean Sprouts
¼ cups Thai Fish Sauce
2 whole Dried Red Chilis (or 1 Fresh Jalapeno)
2 whole Small Limes
1 clove Garlic, Minced

Preparation Instructions

Place defrosted steak in a zip top baggie with soy sauce and canola oil. Let marinate for at least half an hour.
Wash, chop and arrange veggies. Anything can be added to this mix. I enjoy a crisp lettuce like romaine. Fresh tomatoes can be added, green onions are great, carrots or celery could be thrown in. This recipe changes every time depending on what is in my refrigerator.
Dressing: combine fish sauce, lime juice from both limes, zest from 1 lime, garlic and chilis. Stir to combine.
Grill marinated steak on outside grill, George Foreman grill, or cast iron grill pan until desired doneness. Rest cooked beef for 1 to 10 minutes. Slice against the grain in thin diagonal slices. Add beef to the greens.
Pour dressing on top of the beef and greens. Very low in calories for a huge beef salad!!

Traditional Pad Thai

Thaditional Pad Thai 


Pad Thai in Wok
1/2 lb. dried thin gkuay dtiow or rice noodles (also known as ban pho to the Vietnamese)
3 Tbs. fish sauce (nahm bplah), to taste
3 or more Tbs. tamarind juice the thickness of fruit concentrate, to taste
2 Tbs. palm or coconut sugar, to taste
4 Tbs. peanut oil
1/3 lb. fresh shrimp, shelled, deveined and butterflied
3/4 cup firm pressed tofu, cut into thin strips about an inch long, half an inch wide and a quarter inch thick
4-5 cloves garlic, finely chopped
3 shallots, thinly sliced (or substitute with half a medium onion)
1/4 cup small dried shrimp
1/4 cup chopped sweetened salted radish
2-3 tsp. ground dried red chillies, to desired hotness
3 eggs
3 cups fresh bean sprouts
1 cup garlic chives, cut into 1 1/2-inch-long segments (optional)

Soak the dried rice noodles in cool or lukewarm tap water for 40 minutes to one hour, or until the noodles are limp but still firm to the touch. While the noodles are soaking, mix the fish sauce with the tamarind juice and palm sugar; stir well to melt the sugar. Taste and adjust flavors to the desired combination of salty, sour and sweet. Prepare the remaining ingredients as instructed.
When the noodles have softened, drain and set aside. Heat a wok over high heat until it is smoking hot. (Note: If your wok is small, do the stir-frying in two batches. The recipe may also be halved to serve two.) Add 2 teaspoons of oil and quickly stir-fry the shrimp until they turn pink and are almost cooked through. Salt lightly with a sprinkling of fish sauce and remove them from the wok.

Pad Thai on Plate
Swirl in the remaining oil, save for 1 teaspoon, to coat the wok surface and wait 20 to 30 seconds for it to heat. Add the tofu, frying 1 to 2 minutes, or until the pieces turn golden. Add garlic and stir-fry with the tofu for 15 to 20 seconds. Follow with the sliced shallots and cook another 15 seconds. Then add the dried shrimp, sweetened salted radish and ground dried chillies. Stir and heat through a few seconds.
Add the noodles and toss well with the ingredients in the wok. Stir-fry 1 to 2 minutes and when most of the noodles has changed texture and softened, push the mass up along one side of the wok. Add the teaspoon of oil to the cleared area, crack the eggs onto it and scramble lightly. When the eggs have set, cut into small chunks with the spatula and toss them in with the noodles.
Add the sweet-and-sour seasoning mixture. Stir well to evenly coat noodles. If the noodles are still too firm to your liking, sprinkle 1 to 2 tablespoons of water over them to help cook. Taste and adjust flavors as needed to your liking by adding more fish sauce or tamarind juice; if the noodles are not sweet enough, sprinkle in a small amount of granulated sugar.

When the noodles are cooked to your liking, toss in 2 of the 3 cups of bean sprouts and the garlic chives (if using). Sprinkle with half the chopped peanuts and return the shrimp to the wok. Stir and when the vegetables are partially wilted, transfer to a serving platter, or dish onto individual serving-size plates, and garnish with the remaining bean sprouts and chopped peanuts, the lime wedges, cilantro and green onions.
Serves 4 as a one-dish lunch. Squeeze lime juice over each portion before eating.

This Thai soup is wonderful--hot and sour and piquant, an outstanding combination of rich, chewy shrimp--slippery mushroom--and the foresty green of just cooked cilantro fronds in a complex broth. Serve to 4, all at once with rice and any number of other dishes. In a way, it serves as a beverage to the whole meal, served, as it traditionally is, all together.

~1 pound 
  shrimp with shells.
~1 Tablespoon
  peanut oil

~ 5 cups 
   chicken stock

~2 stalks 
  lemon grass
~1 and 1/2 Tablespoons
   of cilantro stems

~2 cloves garlic

~2-4 fresh red chilies,
  seeds removed

~1/2 teaspoon lime zest

~4 Kaffir lime leaves, chopped (or another 1/2 teaspoon lime zest, if you can't find the lime leaves)

~1/2 teaspoon white pepper

~1 can straw mushrooms,
   in    pieces

~1 Tablespoon Nam pla (or  another Southeast Asia fish sauce, like Viet nam's Nuoc mam)

~ Juice of 1 lime

~ 2 fresh red chilies,
   seeded  and slivered

~ 12 whole cilantro leaves

Peel shrimp, reserving shells, and both devein and continue slicing lengthwise, pounding flat--then set aside. Heat oil in a large saucepan, then fry the shrimp shells in it until they turn pink. Pour in chicken stock and bring to a boil, then reduce and let simmer. Cut the lemon grass stalks in pieces--reserving the bottom 5 inches--then bruise the pieces with a few heavy hits, then toss them into the soup.
Cut the reserved lemon grass into thin pieces, then either toss into a blender or pound with the garlic, the cilantro stems, the chilies, and and lime zest and leaves, and white pepper. Stir into the soup, bring to a boil, then reduce and simmer for 20 minutes.
When the stock is done, pour through a sieve, return to the saucepan, and reheat. When soup is at a boil, add shrimp and mushrooms and cook for 2-3 minutes, until the shrimp are pink. Reduce heat, add lime juice and fish sauce, and taste for seasoning.
When ready to serve, stir in slivered chilies and cilantro leaves, then ladle into bowls.
