I love crock pot dishes. They make entertaining so much easier. There seemed to be a lot of sauce so the last 45 minutes, I added in some sliced carrots and zucchini squash. The curry was served over jasmine rice. I did substitute soy sauce for the fish sauce and used 2 oz of the red curry paste. Made for Happy Hearts in the Diabetic Forum.

This one gets an all round ***** from our family. It's just an excellent, easy family meal and even my fussy 6 year old had thirds. I was a bit worried that my crock pot was a bit hot on high so I left it on high for the first hour, then turned it down to medium. Yes, as a gourmet Thai curry this may need a couple of additions but as a good all round, warming, family meal on a cold night then this is just perfect. Thanks Sonya.

What a wonderful dish Sonya. We loved it. Quick and easy to make with tons of flavor. My dh was tired of chicken so I made this using a pork tenderloin. It was delicious. I will definitely make this again. Thanks for sharing your tasty dish. Made for Aussie Swap #39 :)
