Simple Beef Curry

READY IN: 2hrs 5mins
Recipe by getoutofmygalley

I love curries, and the beef (instead of chicken/pork/lamb) is a nice change. Adjust the curry to your taste, I like mine pretty strong! You could use ground sirloin, too, and serve it over mashed potatoes...sounds weird but both of the end results are fabulous!

So this was my 1st time making a curry, spent all afternoon making it and well it was far to spicy for me and my husband (who likes spicey food), only used 2 1/2 cups of water and was still really runny. Would try again as could tell it had good potential, would just reduce chilli powder to pinch chilli power and only 2 cups water.
