Stir-Fried Pork And Prawns With Wing Beans

A fabulous mixture of tender pork tossed in a red curry paste with bright green wing beans and fresh prawns moistened with fish sauce and with a tease of sweetness.


Wing beans/French beans 250 Gram , cut into 1 inch lengths
Red curry paste 2 Tablespoon (you can use the store bought one but I prefer to make mine fresh)
Pork fillets 225 Gram , thinly sliced
Hot water 4 Tablespoon
Fish sauce 4 Tablespoon
Prawns 115 Gram , peeled and deveined
Light brown sugar/White sugar 1 Tablespoon (you can use to your liking)
Sunflower oil 4 Tablespoon
Freshly ground black pepper To Taste



1) In a saucepan, boil water. Plunge the beans in boiling water for 2 to 3 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water. Drain again.

2) Heat a wok, add oil. (If you want you can reduce the amount of oil because the pork will secrete oil of its own when cooked.) Add the red curry paste and stir to bring out the flavor. I usually start salivating at this stage. :)

3) Add the pork pieces and cook until it changes color. Thin slices will cook quite quickly.

4) Add hot water, fish sauce, prawns and beans. Stir well. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes. Add the sugar and black pepper.

5) Taste and adjust seasoning.


6) Serve right away with steamed rice and Madras Rasam.
