    From Charmaine Solomon. This is a large piece of beef cooked in a spicy coconut gravy. Its cut in slices like roast beef and served with the gravy and rice.

      5 stars and beyond! So easy to put together and don't be put off by the ingredients, most of the stuff you have right on hand. Very aromatic when cooking, in fact, I could smell it from the barn! How delightful, and delicate after all the cooking was said and done. I included all ingredients, loved the use of lemongrass, cinnamon stick, fresh ginger, curry powder, fenugreek seeds, vinegar, turmeric, coconut milk, and a bit of chili powder, all these flavors are amazing, and you will want to devour as soon as you put the whole thing together. :) Made for ZWT 6 Zee Zesties!
