Caribbean Pork Curry (Porc Colombo)

  • Level: Easy
  • Yield: 4 servings, 1 1/2 cup each
  • Total: 1 hr
  • Prep: 40 min
  • Cook: 20 min


12 ounces pork tenderloin, trimmed and cut into 3/4-inch chunks

Salt & freshly ground pepper to taste

2 teaspoons canola oil, divided

1 large onion, coarsely chopped (1 1/2 cups)

1 large green bell pepper, seeded and chopped (1 1/2 cups)

3 large cloves garlic, minced

2 tablespoons curry powder

1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme or 1 teaspoon dried

1/2 teaspoon ground allspice

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

2 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth

1 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 3/4-inch chunks (5 cups)

1/2 cup chopped tomatoes, fresh or canned

2-3 Scotch bonnet chiles, pierced all over with a fork

1 bay leaf


  1. Season pork with salt and pepper. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a Dutch oven or heavy soup pot over high heat. Add pork and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned on all sides, about 6 minutes. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels and set aside.
  2. Reduce heat to medium and add remaining 1 teaspoon oil to pot. Add onion and bell pepper and cook, stirring, until vegetables are soft, about 5 minutes. Add garlic, curry powder, thyme, allspice and cinnamon; cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute more.
  3. Add broth, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, chiles and bay leaf. Bring to a simmer, reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, until sweet potatoes are very tender and the sauce has thickened, 15 to 20 minutes.
  4. Add reserved pork and cook until heated through, about 3 minutes. Remove chiles and bay leaf. Adjust seasonings and serve.
