Caribbean Pork Colombo

While we were in Saint Martin I got some spices from the grocery store. I always do this while traveling get something I have never heard of before to take home a foodie souvenir! it smelled so good, just like an Indian curry powder.

So when I got home after reading online and looking for recipes I came up with Pork colombo or Caribbean pork curry. It was easy to make and oh so good. The colombo powder is a mix of toasted rice, cumin, coriander, mustard seeds, peppercorns, fenu greek, cloves and turmeric. The thing that makes this curry powder unique is the rice base giving it a nutty flavor.


  • one park of stew pork
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 2 cups of chicken stock
  • one tablespoon of sugar
  • 1/2 pack, about 3 tablespoon Colombo powder (you could make it or get it online
  • 2 carrots diced
  • 2 diced sweet potatoes
  • 4 sprigs of fresh thyme
  • a few green beans chopped

  1. Heat some olive oil and brown the pork with a little sugar for 5-10 minutes slowly adding the chicken stock so it doesn't stick.
  2. then add the carrot, beans and sweet potato and colombo powder and simmer slowly for 30 minutes

Have you ever got an ingredient from a trip and experimented on your return home?
