Burmese Beef Curry

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Brian Holley

This is a mild curry, from the Burmese coastal area. With only three spices this is an easy dish to prepare, and cook. It can be served with rice or noodles and as such makes a pleasant change.

This was excellent...easy to prepare and very tasty, something that I will for sure be making regularly. I did add salt, but not very much (pinch or two of kosher salt), and upped the chili powder by a pinch. Otherwise, did not change a thing and wouldn't. It did take a good hour and thirty before the meat was tender. I have a feeling after a night of sitting in the curry, the leftovers will be wonderful. Thank you Brian! Look forward to more recipes.
