I was told I just made the best curry dish my friend has ever had. I had to burst my friend’s bubble and gave out my secret ingredient — Trader Joe’s Thai Red Curry Sauce. It’s really simple to use and it is full of flavor. Authentic, I think not, but this stuff passes with-flying-colors by my standards for good Thai cuisine. I love the coconut milk in it. It makes the dish extra fragrant and tasty. My Thai Red Curry with Beef and Bell Peppers took me approximately 10 minutes to cook. It took me longer to cook the rice (well, the rice cooker did all the cooking) than it took to make this dish. Seriously. And it was delicious. Served over a bed of pipping hot steamed rice, dinner tonight was perfection. 1/4 cup of sauce is 80 calories, 2 WW, 6 g of fat, 1 g of fiber, and 1 g of protein. If you are looking for a quick and easy homemade Thai curry meal, I highly suggest this sauce.
