Thai Pork & Tomato Gravy noodles

This pork & tomato dish isn’t something you’d find in many Thai restaurants, but it’s definitely something you’d find me eating at home on my couch. It’s so comforting and delicious. The texture of the fresh noodles combined with the peppery, porky gravy is just so so good.

Then add the chicken stock and simmer for another 3-4 minutes. Then add the cornflour mixture. Simmer for another minute until thick and glossy. Stir through the white pepper.

Perfect comfort food

A local Thai restaurant has a similar dish using ground beef – one of our favorite dishes at their place. I made this using ground beef and it was awesome and simple. I totally failed at the homemade rice noodles but luckily had some dried ones on hand. We making again tonight with fresh noodles we found at our Asian Market. Thanks for this recipe, although if I learn everything our favorite place serves I may not get to go out to eat as often 😄
