Recipe by mersaydees
A recipe based on one found in a Penzeys Spices catalog. I purchased some salt free Vindaloo seasoning from Penzey’s to go with our new low-sodium diet and because I couldn’t find any Vindaloo seasoning at any local grocers. Note: add the optional cayenne pepper for a fiery hot Vindaloo as served in beach front restaurants in India.
- 2 -5 tablespoons vindaloo seasoning
- 2 -5 tablespoons water
- 2 tablespoons canola oil (e.g., do not use olive oil) or 2 tablespoons peanut oil, oil that can withstand heat (e.g., do not use olive oil)
- 1 1⁄2 lbs pork, cubes (can alternatively use lamb or duck)
- 1 large onion, minced
- 1 cup water
- 6 tablespoons vinegar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 4 potatoes, cubed (about 4-6 cups)
- 2 -5 tablespoons cayenne pepper (optional)
