Seasoned with ginger, garam masala, mustard seeds, and cumin, this fragrant Indian-spiced pork loin braises in a tomato-based sauce. The low-and-slow cooking method renders the pork melt-in-your-mouth tender.
1 1/2 tablespoons minced peeled fresh ginger
2 teaspoons garam masala
2 teaspoons mustard seeds
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper
1 (2-pound) boneless pork loin roast, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
Combine first 6 ingredients in a meduim bowl. Add pork, tossing to coat.
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork to pan. Cook 5 minutes or until pork is lightly browned on all sides. Place pork in a 4-quart electric slow cooker.
Add onion and garlic to pan; reduce heat to medium, and sauté 5 minutes or until onion is crisp-tender. Stir in flour. Add wine, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Add tomato to onion mixture. Spoon onion mixture over pork. Cover and cook on LOW for 7 hours or until pork is tender. Serve over rice; sprinkle with cilantro.

Decent starting point for a recipie for someone like me who doesn't know too much about Indian (it's not Vindaloo, but still good). I made this once, tweaking as I went. It worked out very well and I'm about to try it again with beef. After reading the other review that it was lacking something, I ended up rounding each spice up 30% (2.5 tbsp cumin, 2 tsp red pepper because I like spicier, 3 tsp garam masala); I used 8 garlic cloves and 2.5 cups of onion; 1/3 cup red wine is way too little IMO (it was just enough to coagulate the flour). I used about a full cup/cup and a half of red wine and reduced. Also used about a 1-1.5 cups of fresh cilantro and mixed into crock pot just before serving. Overall, with a bit of tweaking this makes a great crock pot dish you can come home to and enjoy over a quick bed of rice.
