Pork Vindaloo

So thrilled that the weather is cooling down a bit!  Perfect time to pull out all my soups, stews and "fall dishes".  This pork dish is easy to put together and is a great starter if you want to dip your toe into cooking Indian food.  The spice isn't overpowering at all but a dollop of plain yogurt or sour cream on top will cool it down a little bit.... and it's actually a great compliment to the dish in general!

Serve this with pita bread or naan and you've got yourself comfort in a bowl!
