Fabulous, my two favorite things to order in a Thai restaurant are Pad Thai (of course) and a good curry dish. This is quite easy and very good. I've never had it with cilantro, although after I tasted it with, I don't know if I can eat it without. Such a simple addition, but perfect for the dish, thank you.

it's a good quick recipe, but it's a bit too easy and plain for my taste and missing different ingredients/tastes. Next time I will use another recipe again ... with lemongrass, fish sauce, ginger etc.
Still really quick & easy and not bad at all :)

I thought the flavor on this was good but mine came out extremely spicy. I think I used too much curry paste as I only had 1.5 lbs of meat defrosted but might not have cut the paste down enough. I will probably give it another shot sometime soon! Thanks for posting.
