This quick meat and vegetable curry starts as a stir-fry and finishes as a braise. Boneless pork shoulder has a rich, full flavor; slicing it thin before cooking counters its chewiness. Green beans cook alongside, absorbing the spiced broth and providing a fresh, vegetal contrast. We use curry powder as a flavor base, but like to add whole spices to amp the intensity.

Excellent, I simmered longer
I made this dish with no cardamom, but a cinnamon stick and the curry leaves. At first, I wasn’t sure if it would have the kick I was looking for, but after a bit I realized that the flavors are more subtle and interesting than the brute force that some curry dishes may have. I also simmered longer than the 15 mins, maybe 20+, because I was more concerned about the meat tenderizing and a thicker sauce than worrying about the green beans being over cooked.

This was delicious and so easy to prepare. It was perfect with just white rice. The only changes I made were grinding the cardamom and mixing it with the other spices, and I did cut the recipe in half for serving just two.
