From a newspaper insert in Panama. Very rich and satisfying! My mother always wants this meal for her birthday.
- 1 1⁄2 lbs filet of beef or 1 1⁄2 lbs sirloin, cut into 1/2-inch strips
- 2 garlic cloves
- 2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger or 1⁄4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1⁄4 cup oil
- 1 1⁄2 cups onions, cut julienne style
- 1 1⁄2 cups red bell peppers, cut into strips
- 1 tablespoon curry powder
- 2 cups coconut milk
- 1⁄3 cup chopped cilantro (garnish)
- Cut the meat, onions and peppers.
- Season the meat with the ginger, salt, pepper & worcestershire sauce (you can let it marinate 1/2" or more, but it is not necessary).
- Heat 1/3 of the oil in a large frying pan/wok over high heat, and saute 1/3 of the meat briefly til no longer pink. Empty meat and juices into another bowl to keep warm. Repeat with the rest of the meat.
- Saute onion and peppers in a bit of oil just a few minutes. (not too long because they will continue to cook just sitting a hot pan!).
- Add curry powder and meat to the onion and peppers in the skillet; stir well.
- Add coconut milk and heat til warm; add salt and pepper to taste.
- Garnish with cilantro; Serve over rice.
I made this recipe with chicken, and it was delicious. Used ground ginger. I'm glad there's plenty of yummy sauce for the rice. Thank you!
