When I took the first bite of Curried Pork, I wasn’t sure that I was going to like it. The more I ate, the more I liked it. Spicy and just a little sweet, this recipe is a flavorful balance.

If you’ve never tried curry before, this is a good recipe try.

I like it best with smoked pork shoulder. I only cook it for 4 to 5 hours since the smoked pork is already cooked. The smokey flavor adds another dimension to the taste that I really enjoy.

Slow Cooker Curried Pork

I remember loving my mother’s Pork Marengo as a child, so when she passed down some of her recipes to me this was one of the first I tried my hand at.

I’ve modified the recipe slightly over the years and sometimes add more mushrooms and tomatoes than listed here when I have extras that need to be used. It’s even better with fresh tomatoes.

You can substitute canned mushrooms for the fresh ones, but it’s quite a taste difference. I try to avoid canned mushrooms because they have that “canned” taste, but sometimes it’s just more convenient.
