Keto Pork Vindaloo

This won’t blow your head off unless you want it to

Hey folks I’m back and we’re picking up where we left off and that’s curry week. After last times delicious Kerala style prawn curry, I’m cooking up the legendary Pork Vindaloo. This is my first time making pork vindaloo and I’m also making the paste from scratch. When I made my vindaloo pork ribs I had used a store bought paste. So this time I get to make it completely Keto friendly and also it’s not going to be too spicy as I get to control how hot the final dish is. Serve this up with some delicious cauliflower rice and you have a perfect Keto meal.

Cooking the pork

For this recipe we’re going to use a fattier cut of pork and the shoulder is the perfect cut. It has the best meat to fat ratio, I find belly to have too much fat and too little meat and pork leg cooks too fast and dries out. You want to cook this low and slow for about 45-50 minutes for a kilo of pork. However you need to keep checking and stirring it around in the pot so it doens’t burn or stick. You want to really reduce that sauce down to a nice thick gravy.  A handy tip is don’t over season it as when the sauce reduces down the salt flavour gets concentrated. So salt it minimally while cooking and once right at the end if you need it. Bon Appetite.

    I have made this many times, each time with a different level of “blow your head off” :), and it’s always such a treat, SUCH a rewarding recipe. Most recently, I doubled the recipe and made this in the slow cooker, marinating chunks of pork shoulder overnight. The next day I sauteed the onions, garlic and tomatoes on the stove, added the marinated pork, gave it “all a good mix” :), and then transferred it all to the slow cooker. I didn’t actually need to add any water at all, this was done in about 1 hour 45 minutes on the high setting… delicious melt in the mouth pork with plenty of gravy. Next time I might cook it down a bit more on the stove at the very end to reduce the gravy but otherwise it’s perfect, so much easier than having to watch the pot on the stove to make sure it doesn’t burn! Thank you again for this lovely recipe.
