Cookbook Countdown: Malay Curried Pork and Potatoes

More from Pat Dailey's The Best Pressure Cooker Cookbook Ever. Tonight there was Malay Curried Pork and Potatoes (p88). I seriously doubt this dish was anywhere close to authentic Malaysian, but it was still tasty.

First you make a finely chop shallots, garlic cloves, ginger, and lemongrass (thank you, staff blender) to make a paste. Fry this in the pressure cooker along with some red curry paste, sugar, ground cardamom, and cinnamon. Turn the heat up, add the pork and brown it. Then add some chicken stock (still working on that Thanksgiving turkey stock) and coconut milk. Close the pressure cooker, bring up to pressure, and cook for twelve minutes.

I served this over rice; this was probably a starch overload.

January starts a new year with Cookbook Countdown. Why don't you choose a book, or two, or more, from your cookbook shelf and join in?


  1. I especially like the fact it takes only 12 mins to cook this dish! Wow!

    1. Some prep, then pressure cook for 12 minutes. Probably saved at least 45 minutes.

  2. This looks delicious! We always love to eat meals like this!

  3. You make it sound so simple, and I can imagine the pork would be a great choice for a pressure cooker recipe. Am loving this quest of yours and learning about this technique each week!

  4. This sounds delicious. Always looking for new ways to cook pork. Especially with lots of flavor.
