GMC #2: Spiced Pork Stew-Indian Style

Ah…finally, I have successfully completed my second submission to my GMC (Garam Masala Challenge).  Go ahead and click here if you don’t have a clue as to what I’m talking about.

I’ve been scouting my favorite recipe website, looking for Indian recipes that are a) not too difficult and b) use garam masala.  It’s a little tough.  Seriously, I  have a new found appreciation for Indian restaurants/cooks.  So much of their delicious foods – do require a lot of ingredients and work (in my opinion). 

I happened to find this week’s recipe using the “old-fashion” way – Google.  I had most of the ingredients on hand already.  And it didn’t seem too difficult.  However, I did have to change it up a little – since the recipe never actually called for garam masala.  Oops.  :-)  But it did call for ALL the individual spices that make up garam masala…so why not use a shortcut? 🙂

For the original recipe, go here.

I started with a slew of spices – one of course being garam masala.


And then I blended up a bunch of spices, garlic, vinegar, sugar, etc. into a paste – which I let some cubed pork loin pieces marinate in.


I fried up the marinated pork pieces in batches.


And then combined cubed potatoes, diced tomatoes, the partially cooked pork, and chicken broth.  Oh, I also threw in a few handfuls of frozen green garbanzo beans.  Eh…why not?


Let it simmer for an hour or so, and you get this Indianish-pork stew kind of thing.  I served with some fresh cilantro on top.   


I realize, it really doesn’t look all that special, but it definitely tasted good.  I ate mine as a stew/soup, while Micah ate his over rice.
