Easy Thai Pork with Coconut Galangal Sauce Recipe

StatesTaste_BlogBadge_160812This fall I am participating in the World Foods in their Fusion Taste Team USA campaign!  This is a fun chance to try out different sauces from Asia and have a friendly competition with bloggers from other states at the same time.  I am part of the New York state team, along with 5 other bloggers, and we are going to be creating recipes using World Foods products for the next month.

The idea behind World Foods sauces is to provide a range of easy to use, economical sauces to make putting together a fantastic taste dinner quick and easy.  My family loves Asian foods, but I don’t always have the Asian spices on hand to create authentic dishes.  Sure, I could make a special stop at the local Asian food store, and pick up something like kaffir lime leaves, but the reality is I only do that a few times a year. It is much easier to let World Fusion do the work, and create a sauce from 100% natural, authentic ingredients.

I received a big package of their sauces to sample, from all different Asian cuisines, including Thai, Malaysian and Cambodian.  I decided to put together a quick stir fry using all the extra things I had in the refrigerator and the Thai Coconut Galangal Sauce.  This meal was literally made with leftovers, including some leftover pork tenderloin, onion, a handful of bok choy, a few mushrooms, some red and green peppers and 1/2 an eggplant.

My husband always complains when I serve leftovers, but this was so different that it seemed like a completely new meal.  It tasted delicious, and the sauce added a nice coconut flavor.  It took me about half an hour from start to finish to make this meal, so it is perfect for a weeknight when you are in a rush. You could use many different vegetables, but here is what I put together.
