#RecipeShed: Slow Cooker Pork Vindaloo, Lay The Table

On a cold winters night, what we all need is a bit of fire. And there is nothing more fiery than a vindaloo. Actually, even though this dish delivers on heat, its more subtle than the ring-stingers you get served in your local Indian. The garlic and chillies become sweet and deep with slow cooking. The pork still has bite, but is very tender. And the potatoes absorb the marvellous masala. But a note of caution: it is seriously hot. Eustacian tube tingly hot. 

Serves 2-4

0.5kg boneless leg of pork, skin removed, trimmed of fat
Whole garlic bulb, separated into cloves and peeled
6-7 large red and green fresh chillies
60ml white wine vinegar
1/2 tsp turmeric
1 tsp black peppercorns
1 tsp cumin seeds
1/2 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp ghee or oil
1 onion, finely chopped
7-8 small new potatoes (dont use floury potatoes as they disintegrate)
25g creamed coconut, mixed with warm water
Coriander leaves, to garnish

7. Transfer to a slow cooker or casserole dish. Cook in the slow cooker on LOW for 3 hours, adding a little water if it starts to stick. Follow same process for casserole cooking, but cook in a low oven, 160C/Gas 3, for 2 hours.

8. Chop the potatoes into 3 cm chunks and add to the pork, along with the coconut cream. Cook for a further 45 mins-1 hour until the potatoes are tender.
