Servings 2 people


  • 1.5 cups Crispy Pork Belly cut into bite size pieces
  • 1.5 cups Sugar snaps or Green Beans cut into 1.5 inch pieces
  • 75 g Homemade Thai red curry paste or adjust amount according to packet instruction
  • 15 Kaffir lime leaves sliced into really fine strips
  • 2 Tbsp Oil
  • 1 Tbsp Sugar
  • 1 Tbsp Fish Sauce


  • Note: Only use 50g (or according to packet instruction) if you’re using store-bought curry paste, and taste before adding any fish sauce as they tend to be quite salty already.
  • Heat 1 Tbsp oil, add green beans. Fry for 1 min. Transfer to a plate.
  • Heat 1 Tbsp oil, add crispy pork belly. Fry until they’re hot & crispy. Note: you can skip this step if your pork belly is “fresh” and is already hot & crispy.
  • Heat 1 Tbsp oil, add curry paste, fry until fragrant. Add crispy pork belly, stir fry to evenly coat the pieces with curry paste.
  • Add sugar + fish sauce. Mix well. Taste & season. Add a splash of water if the paste is sticking to the pan too much.
  • Add green beans. Mix well.
  • Scatter with kaffir lime leaf strips
  • Serve immediately, with steamed jasmine rice
