Giveaway: Win a Super-Fast Thermapen Thermometer

Pork chops - red(the thermapen that is, not the meat)!

20-Minute Thai Red Curry Noodle Soup with Chicken

Agreed with @matth - the simmer/shred method ended up in dry meat which wasn't very appealing. I'd suggest starting with a 1 tbsp of fish sauce and kicking it up from there based on individual tastes.

Pork chops! I can never get quite the timing right and mine always turn out overcooked and dry.

Dinner Tonight: Dry-Fried Chicken

So I made these last night in a frying pan with skinless/boneless thighs. Reduced the oil to the bare minimum in a non-stick frying pan but kept everything else pretty much the same(I opted to omit the sesame oil at the end to reduce it overpowering the bean paste). It turned out to be a winner with the exterior developing a caramelized texture due to the initial heat balanced by a not-too-dry interior.

One deviation that seemed to make a slight difference(I think) was to cook the chilies and peppercorns on high heat to ensure that the chilies take on a smoky/burnt exterior and the peppercorns get crunchy which slightly softened the heat factor but learnt a stunning numbness to the dish in-between-bites. Amazing.
