Pork Chops with Tomato Ginger Curry

This curry & ginger pork recipe is also amazing with chicken thighs or breasts or tofu.  It is an easier variation on one of the first dishes that I loved to eat from a woman that taught me so much about cooking.  She would serve this with lentils and rice and an eggplant dish similar to baba ganoush.

  • Method: Stovetop
  • Cuisine: Indian


  • vegetable oil
  • 4 pork chops, bone in or out (~5 ounces each)
  • 1 cup onion, diced
  • 1 Tbsp garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp ginger, grated
  • 2 cups water
  • 6 Tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp curry (I used Vietnamese Lemon Curry from Savory Spice Shop)
  • 3/4 tsp sea salt
  • black pepper to taste


  • Lightly salt and pepper pork chops.  Bring a large pan to medium high heat,  add vegetable oil to coat bottom of pan and add pork chops.  Sear uncovered ~2-3 minutes on each side.  Remove from pan and set aside.
  • Reduce heat, and add onions. Cook 3-4 minutes or until translucent.  Add garlic and cook until fragrant (1-2 minutes).  Add ginger and cook for ~ 1 minutes or until fragrant.
  • Mix the curry, salt, and tomato paste in a small bowl.  Add mixture to onions, stir, and add water to pan.  Add the pork chops and any juices to pan, bring to a boil, reduce heat to simmer, cover, and cook for ~3 minutes.  Turn the chops and cook an additional 3-5 minutes or until internal temperature of the pork is 145F.
  • Serve over rice and with a fresh vegetable.  Add sea salt to taste.  Happy Eating!  Beckie


  • Sear the pork in batches if you don’t have room in the pan.  You want the meat to have a crust.  It will end up steaming and not searing if you crowd the pan.
