  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 5 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons ginger, grated
  • 4 scallions, sliced thin, green and white parts separated
  • 1/2 cup Panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 3 tablespoons red curry paste
  • 15 ounces can coconut milk
  • 1/2 pound baby bok choy, stem removed and leaves separated

  1. Prepare jasmine rice according to package instructions.
  2. In a large bowl, combine ground pork, half the garlic, half the ginger, scallion whites, breadcrumbs, and salt. Mix well with hands and roll into 16 meatballs.
