Slow cooker pork vindaloo

    6 hours 25 min

    Just the word ‘vindaloo’ could strike fear into the hearts of even the bravest of spice devotees. A long-time curry house favourite, this authentic version of the traditional Goan dish (which has Portuguese roots) is an intensely flavoured, tangy-sour dish. Its original name was ‘vin d’alhos’ meaning wine and garlic in Portuguese. Serve with fluffy rice and your favourite flatbreads.
