I pulled some of the panang curry paste that I made a while ago out of the freezer. I had frozen some of it in individual serving sizes for easy use in the future. This time I made a panang curried pork chop from The Big Book of Thai Curries. I was interested in seeing how the spicy, peanut curry paste would work with honey as a marinade. This dish was pretty easy, just marinate the meat and bake it in the oven. I served the pork chops on rice with lime wedges. The pork was full of flavour, crispy on the edges and juicy on the inside. The sweetness of the honey went well with the panang curry. The curry paste was still aromatic and flavourful even after being frozen.
