Red Curry Pork Medallions

Medallions for doing nothing…

Sometimes it is nice to cook pretty and complex foodstuffs. Other times it is nice to do something that somewhat resembles cooking. This is one of those times. Half of me feels guilty for cooking a recipe with 4 ingredients and 5 minutes of prep time. The other half of me feels all kinds of smart and special. The only challenge in this recipe is finding the aisle in your supermarket that has the curry paste. You can do it.

What you need:

  • 2 pound pork tenderloin, sliced into 1/2″ thick medallion rounds.
  • 2 tbsp of red curry paste.
  • 1/2 can of coconut milk.
  • 1 white or yellow onion, sliced.

How you make it:

  1. Pour your coconut milk into your slow cooker and stir your curry paste in well.
  2. Drop your pork into your coconut curry mixture and make sure all pieces are evenly coated, and then about as flat as possible.
  3. Layer your sliced onions evenly along the top of your pork.
  4. Cook on low for 4 to 6 hours. I ate mine after 4 and they were just fine.

    25 – 40 recipes.
    Picture for each – extremely important.
    Don’t need any prep pictures.

  2. Candie fuller says:

    As many as you can put in a book. Crock pot cooking is the way to go now a days in this fast paced day to day grind and no time to cook healthy. This would make it so much easier and healthier.

  3. Nicole says:

    Do you have any thoughts on whether this would work with other flavors of curry? Green curry paste is what I have in the pantry at the moment so I think I will be attempting the recipe with that….

    1. Jason says:

      This is a very simple recipe and pork takes on flavor well. I haven’t tried this one with green curry paste yet I have cooked with green curry many times and love it as well. I say go for it, I doubt you’ll be disappointed. If you are, you can blame me!

  4. Kelly says:

    What do you serve along side of this?

    1. Jason says:

      Usually a big batch of greens, usually a saute with coconut oil or ghee, some garlic and red pepper flakes.

  5. Meredith Parks says:

    YUM!! I made this but with a pork boston butt, let it simmer in crock pot with said ingredients. Turned out nicely, served over some cauliflower “rice”.

  6. Lauren says:

    Not sure how many recipes I would want – I guess that depends on the price of the book. Finished pictures are great, but food prep pictures might only be useful if it’s not an easy thing to do, or a unique step or something. And YES primal recipes!
