Spicy Garlic Lime Pork Recipe “Moo Manao” หมูมะนาว – Hot Thai Kitchen!

Tender pork sliced drenched in a spicy garlic lime dressing…served with fresh crunchy vegetables and topped with mint leaves. This recipe is healthy, easy and oh, so delicious! It has all the iconic flavours of Thai food: spicy, sour, sweet, and salty, but with a kick of freshness from the herbs and vegetables. The pork is simply blanched, but a technique of “velveting” keeps the pork super moist and tender.

Yes, you can sub chicken, beef, or seafood for the pork, but in Thailand this dish is always served with pork. It’s apparently a popular drinking food…and I must say it goes so well with beer, but I think it would be great any time, with rice, on its own, or even in a taco!

    If I'm keeping this in the fridge, would it be better to separate the sauce from the pork or just combine them?
