Well, thanks, David, for the kind words...I have been cooking for quite a while, and I love to cook, and love to eat, and I dunno how I manage to keep my weight to 10 stone(if a stone is 16 lbs) Here is the curried pork tenderloin...if you have ginger wine available to you, use it instead of white wine.
Step 1: Cut the meat into about one inch pieces, toss with the wine, VERY little salt, and the cornflour...let sit until well absorbed and mix again, if too wet add more cornflour, if too dry, more wine, place in fridge for up to six hours.
Step 2: While the pork is marinating, start the onions in a pan on low heat with a little peanut oil, add the garlic, ginger and a little salt..let this go for about five minutes on low, until the onion, garlic and ginger become fragrant, then sprinkle in the curry powder, at least 1 tbls, or more if the spirit moves you! Simmer on low for another five minutes, and add ⅔ of the can of coconut milk, adding one tbls cornflour to the remainder, set aside, let the curry mixture continue on simmer, after adding the habs for about fifteen minutes.
While this is doing, put ¼ cup peanut oil in a wok, and stir fry the pork pieces, until they are well browned, set aside when all done, and keep warm. Check for thickness of the curry mixture, and add the remaining coconut milk, cornflour mixture, to thicken, add all of the reserved pork, stir around, and throw in the basil and sesame oil to taste.
Serve with Thai rice and a stir fry of vegetables of your choice.
