In this week’s serving of SIMPLY MING, sweet, smooth coconut milk from the East is paired with tart cranberries from the West. To begin, Chef Ming Tsai prepares a Coconut-Cranberry Chicken Curry that introduces India to Cape Cod through its sweet, tart and spicy flavors. Then, Ming uses a brined pork loin to make succulent Peppered Pork Tenderloin with Sweet and Sour Cranberry-Coconut Sauce. To complete the meal, Ming demonstrates the tricks to preparing the perfect poundcake with his delicious recipe for Coconut-Cranberry Poundcake with Coconut Glaze. And later, Annie Copps, Senior Editor for food at Yankee Magazine puts a fun spin on the ingredient pairing with her Coconut and Banana Freeze Pops with Dried Cranberries.
