Green Curry Pork Tortilla with Cilantro Yogurt
This is a delicious dish that combines my favorite flavors, sweet and spicy. The introduction of massive amounts of coriander really gives the green curry a nice floral accent, and the oranges set off the sweetness of the pork nicely. The cilantro yogurt takes the bite off of the curry and leaves a fresh, slightly sour cilantro taste. It is paired with a Cucumber Coriander Lemonade to cleanse the palette.
- 6 oz pulled pork (youll end up eating half of it out of the pan)
- 1 Shallot/onion, small dice
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1 Tbl Coriander, toasted/crushed
- 1 tsp Ginger, grated
- 1 tsp lemongrass, minced
- 2 tsp Green curry paste
- 2 small flour Tortillas
- 1 Tbl Peanut oil
- 1 can Mandarin Oranges
- 4 oz HIGH fat yogurt
- fat pinch of chopped Cilantro
- green onion springs
On low/medium heat, saute diced shallots, onions, garlic in peanut oil for a couple minutes. Toss in the coriander, ginger, lemongrass, and green curry paste, mix it all around in the oil and let the curry paste break up throughout the rest of the ingredients. After a minute or so, add the pulled pork. Mine was leftover from a few nights ago, so I also added a few splashes of chicken stock and let it hydrate and cook down. make sure the pork is well mixed and, ahem, pulled. Remove from heat.
In a large skillet or whatever, heat a teaspon of peanut oil on low/medium. Place tortilla in skillet, and cover with a layer of pulled pork and wait until the tortilla is nice and toasty lookin. Slide it off onto a plate, add a bit more oil to the pan. Place another tortilla over the pork, flip the plate around, and put it back in the pan, with the new tortilla facing down. Let the tortilla crisp up and transfer to a cutting board, cutitng into squares, trianges, or whatever.
For the yogurt suace, simply mix it with the cilantro. Top the tortillas with onion springs, oranges and yogurt, or use it on the side as a dipping suace.
