"My husband and I both really liked this dish. I used the coconut cream which was a first for me. I will make this again!"

"I usually don't bother to rate or review recipes but I had to rate this one. I would give it 10 stars if I could. I have served it to several different dinner guests and they have all asked for the recipe. The dish is very flavorful and it is so easy to make. It is one of my favorite recipes on this website."

"I substituted chicken for pork, and added ginger. I also cooked it in the slow cooker and it came out amazing. Totally recommend this dish!"

"I made this dish exactly as written, and we did not like it at all. It was easy to make, and I had all the ingredients on hand, but the flavor was just not right. We did not like the peanut butter with the curry."

"A good basic curry dish with easy-to-find ingredients (I had everything in my kitchen!). I used chicken instead of pork as this was the protein I had on-hand, but made the rest of the dish exactly as written. The sauce is rich (I used coconut milk) and flavorful. For those who have never used peanut butter in curries or similar dishes, it adds a great depth of flavor but is not terribly sweet when blended with the other ingredients and flavors."
