  1. Broil the pork that is cut into four pieces and sprin­kle lib­er­al­ly with salt and pep­per in a large bak­ing sheet.
  2. Turn once until well browned, for 15 to 20 min­utes.
  3. Place the cut pota­toes in the bot­tom of the Crock Pot. Sprin­kle light­ly with salt and black pep­per.
  4. While the pork is brown­ing under the broil­er in the oven, in a large skil­let, heat the oil over medi­um-high heat. When it is hot, add the cur­ry paste and fry for about 3 to 5 min­utes or until the paste smells aro­mat­ic and starts to absorb the oil. Whisk in the coconut milk and cook for anoth­er few min­utes, or until the coconut milk begins to bub­ble.
  5. Take the browned pork out of the oven and drain the fat. Arrange the pork in the crock pot with the pota­toes, and pour the hot green cur­ry and coconut milk mix­ture over it.
  6. Cov­er.  Cook on Low for 6 to 8 hours.
  7. At the end of crock­ing shred the pork with two forks; it should be ten­der. (Depend­ing on how much fat is released from the pork, the cur­ry sauce will not look thick and creamy; it will prob­a­bly be thin.)
  8. Taste and sea­son if nec­es­sary with salt or soy sauce.

Serve with brown or white rice.

Option­al:  chopped cilantro and/or chives and/or toast­ed unsweet­ened coconut.
