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!
A 5* recipe ? I made it and it was very good. The ingredients were accurate but the directions are lacking information ;-( So what happened to the garlic? When does that get added? Should the garlic be sliced or minced? How long to simmer until the meat is cooked through? Simple things, but such a a lazy presentation for such a tasty meal.
