Slow Cooker Leftover Pork Curry

Leftover Pork Curry

You will never find a pork curry on my menu said Rashid as we sat down for dinner at the local Indian restaurant when I was about 10 years old.

We were having a conversation, that was mainly led by my dad as he needed some curry making for a charity event and was getting a quote.

Rashid said, anything but pork as I am a Muslim and don’t eat pork. We then went on to make us some of the most delicious ever lamb and beef curry that went down well with everyone that ate it.

He was the first Muslim I ever met and so kind and friendly and I went to this Indian restaurant throughout childhood and remember having my hen party there the weekend before I got married.

It stuck with me though, because I love a pork curry just as much as I like a beef curry, lamb curry, or turkey curry. And whilst I wont find a pork curry on an Indian menu, a leftover pork curry is my favourite way to use up roast pork leftovers.

In today’s pork curry recipe, I am using the ingredients I usually include in some of my other curry recipes such as our slow cooker chickpea curry or our slow cooker curried sausages but swapping it out for pork and making the best leftover curry ever.

What To Make With Leftover Roast Pork?

The best things to make with leftover roast pork is in the slow cooker. That is because the slow cooker will just gently heat up the pork and make it wonderfully tender, rather than cooking it again.

You could use the slow cooker for a leftover pork stroganoff, leftover pork curry (like we are doing today), leftover pork soup, leftover pork cottage pie and so much more.

Which Part Of Pork Is Good For Curry?

The best part of the pork to make a delicious pork curry recipe with is the pork loin. You can cut it up well from the leftovers of your pork roast dinner and it will keep well in the fridge until you come to make your curry.

But first why not make our instant pot frozen pork loin or our air fryer pork loin and then enjoy a roast dinner and then save the leftovers for your slow cooker Indian pork curry.

How Do You Make Leftover Pork More Tender?

To make leftover pork more tender, dump the leftover pork into the slow cooker with some liquid and slow cook.

The slow cooker is fantastic for making pork more tender.

Then if your pork was not very tender, slow cook for 2 hours, turn into pulled pork and instead make a pulled pork curry.

Curry Pork Slow Cooker Ingredients

Curry Pork Slow Cooker Ingredients

Pork – We chopped up some leftover pork loin for this curry. Though you can use any leftover boneless pork.

Puree – To keep the ingredients simple we used lemongrass puree, garlic puree, ginger puree, and tomato puree.

Veggies – Just like making a pork casserole we loaded it up with veggies including onion, carrots, sweet potatoes and peppers.

Tinned Tomatoes. I also recommend adding in some tinned tomatoes and these can be the base of your quick pork curry. Plus, you will be amazed how good a curry is in the slow cooker with them.

Chickpeas – What I love about chickpeas in a curry is that they fill you up for longer and soak up some of the sauce.

Seasoning – Then for seasonings we have just kept it simple with salt, pepper, cumin, turmeric, coriander, paprika, garam masala, and mild curry powder.

Yoghurt – I also recommend just before serving, to stir in some Greek yoghurt. It gives it that amazing creamy curry texture. Though if you want to keep the calories low you can use fat free yoghurt for this.

Then for the kitchen gadgets that we have used in this recipe for leftover roast pork curry it has just been our Crockpot. We have this one and its wonderful for many types of slow cooker recipes and also great for easy weeknight dinners.

Plus, we recommend you head over to our slow cooker recipes category as we have more than 100 tried and tested slow cooker recipes and have been using slow cookers for 18 years.

Leftovers. Note we had a lot of leftover pork curry and I wanted to make a good batch for the freezer. You’re welcome to use less and it will still be a delicious pork curry.
Spicy. I love a mild spiced curry like a korma, but if you want more of a kick to your curry, then you can add extra curry powder or swap mild curry powder for a madras.
Adjust. Note that at the time of adding the chickpeas it can often be too thick of a curry with all the ingredients that have been added. If this happens just add another can of tinned tomatoes.
