It is utterly impossible to take a pretty picture of this recipe. I tried over and over again to the point the food was cold and the house was hungry, but every photo came out the same completely unappetizing. However, I challenge you to get past the photos and give this recipe a try. It’s full of delicious Thai flavors, including coconut milk and curry, and tastes great on a bed of rice or rolled up in cabbage leaves. Also as some of you saw on Instagram (you can follow here), I shattered the lid to my crock pot earlier this week, so I ended up making this stovetop. However it is perfect for the slow cooker and will work great either way.
