Maple Apple Pork Japanese Curry on plateMy friends constantly ask me to make two of my dishes: maple apple pork, and Japanese curry. I thought to myself, "Why not try turning them into one dish?" I did it, and it was amazing! The maple and apple really tone down the heat of the spicy curry, and goes phenomenally well with the tender cuts of pork. This goes great on a bed of Japanese rice, topped with a large cooling dollop of plain Greek yogurt.


I buy my curry box mix at the Asian market for quite cheap. I've added a link for one on Amazon if you cannot find one in-store.
