Title: Green bean curry (aka country curry or jungle curry)
Yield: 6 Servings
1 lb Fresh green beans
2 tb Thai Curry Paste
2 tb Vegetable oil
Bamboo shoots (optional)
6 c Chicken broth
Clean and pick green bean tips. In a dutch oven (or equivalent size
vessel), heat oil. Add curry paste and "fry" until fragrant, about 1
minute. Add broth, green beans, bamboo shoots (or other vegetable).
Bring to a rapid boil and cook like that for about 15-20 minutes
(watching that liquid doesn't reduce too much; add water as
necessary). Reduce heat to a hard simmer and continue cooking until
green beans are VERY done and have absorbed the flavor of the curry
broth. Serve in bowls over rice.
NOTES: If necessary, you may substitute whole frozen green beans for
Thai Curry Paste: "Country Curry" or "Red Curry"; but they are all
flavorful. Mae Ploy and Tommy Tang are other good brands.
Bamboo shoots: I like to use a large can of bamboo tips because they
are tender and I can cut them into 1/4 inch thick round slices. You
can also use a couple of the small cans of sliced bamboo shoots, but
they will not absorb the flavor as well. I think carrots cut into
coins would also be good, if you like those. I tried potatoes once,
but they just disintegrated.)
