Thai Mango Sticky Rice

Peter Janke - World Missionary
There is a lot to love about Thai food. Panang Curry, Spicy Basil Pork, and Papaya Salad have quickly become some of my favorite dishes. But none of them beats my absolute favorite: Mango Sticky Rice. There are many recipes out there for Mango Sticky Rice, some more garnishes or steps, but I’ve found the simple recipe is just as good and takes a fraction of the time and effort. In fact, I’m not sure I can call it a recipe because I don’t know the exact amount, but I’ve tried my best to lay it out for you here.

Equipment

  • Rice Cooker (Or a steamer)

Ingredients
  

  • 3 cups Thai Sticky Rice (Not jasmine, it won't work)
  • 2 cups coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 4 mangos yellow, sweet, juicy ones

Instructions
 

  • Put the sticky rice in the rice cooker with water and set to glutenous rice setting. Alternate Step One: You can also wash, soak the sticky rice for 5-6 hours, and then steam the sticky rice using any form of a steamer, Thai people use steam baskets, steaming for about 15 minutes. (You see, this is why we just buy it local for $1.50!)
  • Mix coconut milk with sugar in a saucepan and heat until the sugar is all absorbed into the sticky rice.
  • Peel the mangoes and slice off two sides of the mango from the pit. Slice the mango into bite sized pieces. I usually do one cut lengthwise and four or five cuts widthwise.
  • When the sticky rice is finished, place sticky rice and mango on a plate together. Pour the sweetened coconut milk over the sticky rice.
  • Eat and then repeat step four.

Northern Thai Pork Stew

Stephen Wiesenauer - World Missionary
This is actually a Thai adaptation of a Taiwanese dish brought by immigrants about a century ago. The version shared here is a family favorite of the Wiesenauer family. Super easy to make. Smells and tastes amazing.

Ingredients
  

  • 2 lbs pork cut into 2 inch pieces
  • 4-6 potatoes peeled and cut into 2 inch pieces
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup cooking wine
  • 2 slices ginger root approximately 2 inches long each
  • 2 whole star anise
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • Enough water or chicken broth to cover ingredients

Instructions
 

  • Put ingredients in crockpot and cook on low for approximately 6 hours. Add more water as needed.
  • Serve over rice.
  • This dish is traditionally served with hard boiled “stewed” eggs. The eggs are boiled and peeled first, and then soaked in some of the stew sauce overnight in the fridge.
  • Then return the eggs to the stew when you reheat it.
  • The eggs only work if you plan on making the stew a day ahead of time or if you plan on having leftovers for the next day.
