Preheat oven to 150°C. Trim rind and excess fat from the pork. Cut pork into 5cm pieces.


Heat half the oil in a large, deep ovenproof dish or frying pan over high heat. Cook the pork, in two batches, stirring, for 5 mins or until browned all over. Transfer to a plate.


Heat remaining oil in same dish over medium heat. Cook the onion, stirring, for 3-4 mins or until softened. Add the curry paste and cook, stirring, for 2 mins or until fragrant. Stir in the diced tomato and stock. Return the pork to the dish. Cover and cook in the oven for 1 hour.


Add the pumpkin and cauliflower to the curry. Return to the oven and cook, covered, for 30 mins or until pork and vegetables are tender. Stir in the coconut cream and add the beans. Cook, covered, a further 10 mins or until beans are just tender. Serve curry sprinkled with the coriander.
