Coconut Cream Curry Sauce and Thai Meat Sticks

Matt made these for dinner.  I think it should be weekly.  I think you should make it too.  Yum!
Holy cow I love the results coming out of our kitchen now that he’s had cooking lessons at Thai Basil with Nongkran.

Please note: the title of this post is not meat sticks with cream sauce, but it is in fact cream sauce with meat.  The sauce is THAT good.

Thai Meat Sticks with Coconut Cream Sauce
(Recipe by Matt)

First the meat

  • 1 lb ground lamb
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 2 T  Thai red curry paste
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 2 tsp ground cumin seed
  • 1 egg
  • skewers
  1. Combine ingredients in a bowl and mix by hand
  2. Form meat around skewers (I made about ten)
  3. Grill for about 15 minutes, turning halfway

Next, the cream sauce

  1. In saucepan over medium heat combine coconut cream, chili paste, salt and cumin and mix as it melts.
  2. Add water, whisking continuously until it becomes a sauce.

We served the sticks and “dip” with a salad with raspberry sauce and roasted sweet potato.

Expect more soon, as I will be demanding Thai food regularly since it’s insanely delicious and Matt has now been taught by the best.

    Made this for supper last night and it was fabulous! Thank you. We formed the meat into balls instead of sticks because we had no skewers. We are transitioning to paleo–a family of mum, dad, and 6-year-old daughter, who still loves her noodles and rice (sigh), but I am trying. It’s a long haul and a lot of work but will be worth it in the long run.

    • That’s great! Even though this is one of my oldest recipes, I still make this from time to time, especially for lunches. Glad you enjoyed it. Good luck on your mission. I know it’s hard, but you will make it there!

    Ohhhhhh that sauce sounds so unbelievably yummy!! I am addicted to thai curry paste I actually eat it by spoon out the tub sometimes LOL

    •  We’re big fans as well. Let us know if you like the sauce!

      • Kimmy

        We LOVED it!!

  • Amanda

    wow, my sauce is not that color at all!! I wonder what’s different, I followed the recipe! Weird… It’s a good sauce, but just a bit salty for me..

    • Kimmy

      did you use red curry paste? I made it and it looked just like on the picture 🙂

      • Amanda

        Yeah I did, I think maybe I just didn’t make it as thing as what’s in the picture. I ended up adding some coconut milk and it was pretty good!

        •  Not sure what went wrong, but glad you liked it nonetheless 🙂

    The sauce recipe calls for Thai Roasted Red Chili paste, but the link is for Thai Red Curry Sauce. Could that be why Amanda’s sauce turned out a different color?

    Hi everyone. Has anyone tried this with ground, turkey thighs? I have a bunch in the fridge and need to try something new

    • Haven’t tried that yet, but I assume it would just be a little leaner than the beef and lamb, and therefore might not hold together as well, but I bet it would still taste delicious! let us know if you try it and it works out!
