Chef's Note

Thai curry paste helps give this dish authentic heat, but you could also use Asian chilli sauce or even hot pepper sauce.

Lemongrass skewers:
Use the whole top or if thick, cut in half lengthwise, depending on thickness, This imparts a nice hint of lemongrass flavour to the pork. You can substitute soaked wooden skewers if desired.
