You don’t have to go to Thailand to eat a good Thai curry. You don’t even have to go to a Thai restaurant. Thai curries are easy enough to make at home—even on a busy night—without having to hunt far and wide for exotic ingredients. This easy curry is called country-style because its rustic and simple enough to make anywhere, anytime, using just meat, vegetables, curry paste, and broth or water. There’s no coconut milk in a country-style curry, so it has the texture of a hearty soup rather than a stew.
Serve the curry with lime wedges on the side to squeeze over all.

Delicious! I will go a little more easy on the salt next time. I'm trying to look for a replacement for the soybeans. I cubed some potatoes and fried them up and used them instead of rice and soybeans.
loved it! i ended up using just 2 Tbs. of fish sauce since the fish sauce brands i have are ridiculously salty. served it over chinese noodles, piling on the broth. i will definitely be making again and again!
A nice alternative to the coconut milk-based Thai curries. I thought it could use a lot less chicken broth. I used Red Fresno chilis and added them with the edamame. They gave the broth some heat but they're mild enough to eat.
