Since I enjoy Thailand as well as Thai food, I have found many of A Taste of Thai products wonderful, especially the Lite Coconut Milk. But, this recipe for Ma Ho is great. I hope you enjoy.
Ma Ho, a popular Thai hors d’oeuvre, is a spicy meat mixture usually served in tangerine segments. We made it into easier finger food by filling endive leaves.
22-26 pieces, depending on size of endive leaves.
TIME: 20 minutes
1 tablespoon canola or olive oil
1/2 cup minced onion
4 large cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon and 1 teaspoon Red Curry Paste
1-8 oz can crushed pineapple (in it’s own juice)
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1 lb lean ground pork or turkey
1 tablespoon Fish Sauce
1 tablespoon light brown sugar
1/2 cup dry roasted peanuts, roughly chopped (extra for garnish)
2 tablespoons minced cilantro (extra for garnish)
2 or 3 large endives, leaves separated and washed
