Lettuce discuss this red curry sauce situation.

Homemade Red Curry Sauce

All you need is full-fat canned coconut milk, red curry paste (yes, this is store-bought, yup, we’re going for easy peasy here!), fresh ginger, and a touch of fish sauce. Simply heat it all up on the stove top and use it for all your red curry needs.

Which brings me to my next point: this red curry sauce is versatile AF! Use it to your heart’s delight to add Thai flair to any of your meals.

  • Swap the ground beef in the meatballs for any of your favorite ground meats.
