Pakistani Kima (Hamburger Curry)

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Kaarin

A really easy one skillet meal made with ingredients I can find in my Wisconsin kitchen. Full of flavor and not too spicy; my kids love this. From Mennonite cookbook More-With-Less.

What a great dish! As if it isn't already a quick fix, I have found a few substitutions can speed up the prep even more. For the potatoes, I usually grab a couple of handfuls of shredded hashbrowns from the freezer. I also like to use diced tomatoes and frozen green beans. My family seems to like it on rice, but tastes great without, too. Likewise, I think the salt could be reduced a little bit without compromising any flavor. Overall, a winner...thank you!
