Pork & Shrimp Mince Sauce ( Loon Torw Jiew )


Like many Thai recipes, it may not look like much, but it's a very delicious rich sauce of minced shrimp meat and minced pork. The soya sauce you will need is brown salty soya.

2 Teaspoons Brown Salty Soya Sauce
150 ml Coconut Milk
30 gms Minced Prawn Meat
30 gms Pork Mince
2 Teaspoons Salt
2 Tablespoons Tamarind Water
5 Red Chillies
2 Tablespoons Chopped Onions

1. Put the coconut milk into a saucepan over a medium heat.
2. When the coconut is boiling, add the soy sauce and stir.
3. Add the prawn mince and pork mince and cook for 5 minutes.
4. Add the chopped onions, salt, red chillies and tamarind water.
5. Cook for 2 minutes then serve it with vegetables.

Serve With
Thai Fragrant Rice
Green Lettuce

Sawasdee Khun Apporn!

I am a silent reader/ admirer of your blog until now, I have decided to leave you a 'THANK YOU' note for sharing your expertise. I think thai cooking is the best in Asia ( yes, I am a thai food-fan :) )

I've never had this Loon Torw Jiew, I'll try this in the near future.

before I end, may I ask if you have a recipe for suki (fondue) sauce? I live in europe and my husband is fond of MK's suki in BKK (whenever we'd visit Thailand,we had to go to MK) this christmas he wants me to do suki (oh geez, sauce is my biggest challenge for I am no good cook!) but I really have no idea how to make the sauce. If you don't have it, then it's okay, what you share here is more than great help!

yours truly,



I'm from Indonesia. I like Thai food! They're so yummy and spicy. I also make Suki sauce from your recipe and love it. Do you have Hang Wue T. Kratiam (Beef Oxtail Cut) recipe? I'm very glad if you can send it.

Thank you,

We don't eat much beef in Thailand and I don't like the taste. Sorry.
