    This was delicious! My husband had 3 portions as he couldn't get enough! Thank you for the recipe We added some coriander on top too and it was lovely Will definitely be making this a regular thing x  -  10 Nov 2015


    This dish is pretty good. I made a double batch because I had guest coming, and I had lots of pork to use, I also added an onion. I think the cooking time is a bit long. Also it wasn't too spicy, which is okay because kids were also eating it and they liked it just how it was. But the adults added more red pepper flakes at the table. I was worried it was going to be "too" spicy because of other reviews, but it ended up to be too mild! This kind of food is supposed to be spicy. I also think one more piece of advice would be not to put in the peppers until later because mine were very soggy. I would make this again, but I would add the fresh peppers later, lessen the cooking time, and add more spice.  -  02 Dec 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Oh my word!!! This was so good words cannot express it! I followed the recipe almost exactly, the only thing I did different was I only added 3 tablespoons of peanut butter instead of 4! It was outstanding we served it with coconut rice for the best THAI experience ever! I will be making this again and again...the pork was so tender it was unreal. Thank you to whoever came up with the recipe!  -  17 Oct 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
