Goan Pork Stew

One more dish that turns my boys into drooling puppies. This is my version of the pork stew which can be served as a complete meal. You could serve it with some garlic bread slices or eat it as is.

Serves: 6 to 8 persons

Prep. Time: 20 Mins. + 2 hrs. to overnight (marination)

Cooking Time: 20 Mins. (active) + 60 Mins. (passive)


  • Boneless Pork (cut into small pieces) – 750 gms.
  • Carrots (cubed) – 1 cup
  • Potato (small cubes) – 1 big
  • Peas (shelled) – 1 cup
  • Onions (finely chopped) – 3 medium
  • Tomatoes (finely chopped) – 2 big
  • Ginger-Garlic Paste – 1 tbsp.
  • Cloves – 10
  • Cinnamon – 3 inch
  • Cardamom – 4
  • Black Pepper Corns – ½ tsp.

  • Cheese (grated) – 1 small cube
  • Macaroni (elbow) – 1 cup

  • Sea Salt – 1 ½ tsp.

Step 1:    Apply salt to the cut meat, mix and marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours or overnight.


Step 2:     Take the meat in a pressure cooker and sauté on high heat for 5 minutes. Add 1 cup water, cover the pressure cooker with the lid and continue cooking on low heat till 1 whistle. After one whistle, cook on low heat for a further 10 minutes.

Step 3:     In a big vessel, heat the oil and add cardamoms, cloves, cinnamon, bay leaf and peppercorns and sauté for a minute. Add the onions and sauté till translucent.

Step 4:     Add the ginger-garlic paste and saute for 2 minutes. Add the tomatoes, mix and cook covered on low heat for 12 to 15 minutes. Stir in between. Add the chopped vegetables, peas and saute for 2 to 3 minutes.


Step 5:     Add the boiled pork along with the stock. Mix and then add 1 cup warm water. Crumble the stock cube and add to the pan. Cover and cook on low heat for 30 minutes till the vegetable and meat is tender.


Step 6:     In the meantime, bring 1.5 litres of water to a boil. Add the macaroni and cook till it is ¾ done. Drain and keep aside.

Step 7:     When you are done with step 5, add the macaroni to the meat. Mix and cook covered for 10 minutes.


Step 8:     Dissolve the flour in 3 tbsp. of water to make a paste. Add this to the stew, mix and cook for 5 minutes.


Step 9:     Add the butter, grated cheese, pepper powder and mix. Cook covered for a further 3 minutes on low heat.
