    Turkey Meatballs & Bok Choy in Coconut Lemongrass Curry
    Title
    • 10 oz Ground Pork
    • ½ cup Brown Rice
    • ¼ cup Panko Breadcrumbs
    • 1 13.5-Oz Can Light Coconut Milk
    • 1 stalk Lemongrass
    • 1 Tbsp Yellow Curry Paste

    1 Prepare the ingredients

    Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and the hollow green tops. Peel the carrots; thinly slice on an angle. Using the back (blunt edge) of your knife, hit along the length of the lemongrass to release the oils, then cut crosswise into 2-inch pieces. Cut off and discard the root ends of the bok choy; roughly chop. Quarter the lemon.

    Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine the pork, sliced white bottoms of the scallions, and breadcrumbs. Season with salt and pepper. Gently mix to combine. Shape the mixture into 10 tightly packed meatballs. In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil medium until hot. Add the meatballs. Cook, stirring occasionally, 5 to 7 minutes, or until browned on all sides. Add the sliced carrots; season with salt and pepper.
