It can be tricky to find fresh green peppercorns, but this comes up just as well with the tinned sort. Either way, they cut through the richness of the sauce and give the dish a nice heat.

This is very tasty. I doubled the amount and added extra coconut milk. Bottled green peppercorns on the steam (1 for each person), 1/3 cup green coconut paste and snake beans. Absolutely delicious and I will cook this again soon :D

This is great. I used pork shoulder sliced thinly and bottled green peppercorns - 5 left on the stems (1 for each person as I doubled the ingredients). I also used twice as much coconut milk as suggested and luckily had some snake beans. We had 1/4 cup green coconut paste but only 3 green chillies in total. The flavour was wonderful, light and tasty with a great spicy overall flavour. Will be cooking again.
