I ruined a beautiful pork loin roast recently. I cooked it too long in not enough liquid and dried it out. Mistakes happen, I guess. But, I was not about to waste that roast, dry or not. So, I began looking for recipes that would tenderize the already-cooked meat and perk up the flavor. I found a curry cream sauce recipe that would do the trick, but it was full of fat and calories. I lightened it up by using 98% fat free cream of chicken soup and reduced calorie mayonnaise (the kind that’s made with olive oil).
About 4-6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, legs, or thighs can be substituted for the pork. The chicken parts needn’t be sliced. I would recommend using leftover chicken or pork; this saves the step of browning the meat before it goes into the slow cooker for this recipe.
Curry is a strong, unique flavor, and usually folks either like it or they don’t. Start with 1 T. of curry and add more if you like a more intense flavor. You can always add spice to the dish, but you can’t remove it! Give Pork in Curried Cream Sauce a try and see if your family enjoys this unusual dish alongside fresh spring asparagus and couscous.
