    Mrs Goodall's Note:

    **Freezer Friendly recipe. Freeze in individual portions in freezer bags. I added fresh cilantro once before serving because I had it on hand. Fabulous. I have a lot to say about this little recipe. First it is ugly, really ugly. A totally white dish. It does taste fabulous. Do not omit the garnish, it adds color and the flavors are important. This recipe was a great solution to a "Costco" dilema I encountered. I buy boneless pork chops in bulk at Costco and needed some easy recipes other than traditional pork chops. I found this recipe in Mark Bittmans "The Best Recipes in the World" and of course adapted it to my needs. It takes about 15 minutes max to make. Love that! What I especially like, is that I learned to grind my own meat in my food processor. You simply cut the pork into chunks (1 - 2 inches) and put them in the processor. Pulse on and off until it's ground. I thought it would be a big gooey mess, but it worked perfectly! The original recipe call for 1/2 pound of uncooked shrimp, peeled and chopped. I just substituted cooked bay shrimp and add them at the end. (You could certainly leave out the shrimp). I also worried about the pork being cooked through, but becuase it was ground it only took a few minutes!! Nam Pla is an Asian fish sauce made from Anchovies. It is like a light soy sauce.

      I thought this was really tasty. I used a dried thai chili because that's what I had. Kept it mild for my 6 year old (who loved it). I also added veggies and bamboo shoots. The veggies really helped the appearance, adding some color. Added some fresh lime juice just before serving.
