Pork, Shiitake and Edamame in Coconut Cream Sauce

Several days ago I did not know what I wanted to cook, it was nearly weekend and we haven’t planned anything to prepare that day so what I have on my freezer are leftover ingredients. I was thinking of doing some free style cooking but when I do that it usually ends up in something stir fried, fried rice or a noodle dish, we will be changing that hence I made this coconut curry dish made out of pork, shiitake and edamame.
