    Brian Holley's Note:

    Hot, Hot, and aromatic. This recipe uses white wine vinegar and some sugar, and is unusual in that. This is a low fat version and therefore healthier than some recipes. You will need a grinder/blender or mortar and pestle to make this dish. Its a cracker. Ps. a glass of lager goes well with this.

      I made this last night and it was absolutely fabulous! It was quick to prepare and then I just left it cook for about 1 and a half hours, the meat was so tender and deliciously spicy! This is a such a tasty way to use a cheap cut of beef, and I had all the other ingredients already on hand. I cooked it in a Le Creuset French Oven on the stove top, it was perfect. I might even make double qty of the paste next time and freeze half. Thank you for a great recipe!

      Brian, Yes! This is Hot, Aromatic, Very Tender and Flavorful! Mine was no where as red as yours and to look at the ingredients I can`t see what would make it so red and rich looking? But no matter it was delish! This was my first at making vindaloo and won`t be my last. My DH always wanted to have this because of the show Red Dwarf. Little did I know that till we went to a Indian restaurant and he ordered it. He was disappointed and I just knew it wasn`t prepared right! So I looked and found your recipe and had great results. I served over Saffron Rice. Thank you!
