Pork Vindaloo

Pork vindaloo has always been one of my favorite  dishes. However, like many things, I always thought it took way to much effort and work to make at home. So I would usually just resort to ordering it when in the mood while dining out.

Pork Vindaloo

Of course, I was wrong. At least in the case of this pork vindaloo from Brian over at Krumpli. He managed to make the simplest, yet still very tasty pork vindaloo I have ever seen. It came together quite quickly and then you just let it simmer in a pot for a couple hours to get the pork nice and tender. Place it over a bed of white or whole grain rice (what I used) and you have yourself a delish meal.

I will definitely be making this more often…
