Pork and Potato Curry – An Unusual Success

Carole's Chatter: Pork and Potato Curry - An Unusual Success

So I had some pork mince (ground pork) and the usual question arose – what to do with it.  I also had some leftover coconut milk.  I ended up with this non-traditional curry that worked out well.


Pork mince
Coconut milk
Curry powder
Fish sauce
Crispy shallots
Lemon juice
Chicken stock cube
Vegetable Oil


Brown the mince – just a quick cook, it won't go very brown

Add the crispy shallots (store bought from the Asian section)

Oil the bottom of a casserole dish.  Layer slices of potato on it – I used salad potatoes.

Then put the mince/onion mix on top.

Mix together the coconut milk, turmeric, curry powder, Fish sauce, pepper and lemon juice – adding the crumbled stock cube.  Pour this over the pork and potato.  If you don't have fish sauce just add salt or soy sauce.

Bake in a moderate oven for about 1 hour – just check the potatoes are tender before you decide it's ready.

The result was creamy potatoes and a combination of crispy pork bits and softer ones.  A nice texture.


  1. I love curry anything and this looks like a super way to use up what you had.

  2. I’m a huge fan of curry. Was it spicy or mild? I always try and use up anything i the fridge too.

  3. Oooo interesting. I tried cooking something similar an eon ago and it failed for me.

  4. I think I have pork mince (as you cutely call it) in the freezer! I love curry so will try this recipe. Thanks!
