Curried Pork With Vindaloo Over Rice

Here is another recipe that I recently found in the Penzey Newsletter that has become a favorite recipe of mine. I had never heard of Vindaloo seasoning before, but I will never be without it now. It is the perfect combination of seasonings. This recipe was contributed by Catherine Clark and it is fantastic. I made it once adding green beans and once adding potatoes. I think cauliflower would be good, too. I also have made it with chicken instead of pork. Also I increased the amount of coconut milk to 1 cup from the original recipe of 2/3 cup. If you add extra ingredients, you will need the increased amount of milk.


  • 1 lb boneless pork tenderloin, cut into 1/2 to 1 inch cubes
  • 2-3 Tablespoons Vindaloo Seasonings
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tablespoon oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves fresh garlic, minced
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
  • Vegetables (optional)
  • Cooked rice


  1. Mix together the Vindaloo, vinegar, and salt into a paste and set aside.
  2. In a large skillet, heat the oil, add the onions and garlic and lightly brown.
  3. Add the Vindaloo paste and stir for about 3 to 5 minutes. This will become thicker.
  4. Add the meat , stirring to cover it with the paste and searing it for 2 minutes.
  5. Add the coconut milk and stir to deglaze the pan.
  6. Reduce heat to a low simmer (this is where you can add vegetables) and stir occasionally, until the meat is cooked and tender, about 7 to 10 minutes.
  7. Serve over rice.
