Thai Pulled Pork Sliders step by step

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In a small skillet, simmer the curry paste with the fish sauce and 1/4 cup of the palm sugar over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until the sugar is dissolved and a smooth paste forms. Let cool slightly..
  2. Season the pork with salt and rub it all over the curry paste. Set the pork in a large enameled cast-iron casserole.
