Tomato Beef Curry

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by lazyme

Years ago I took a series of Chinese cooking classes. I lost the recipes that I had acquired there and just recently found them again. Here's one of our favorites. To make the steak easier to slice, take the meat out of the freezer for about 1 1/2 hours before slicing. If it's cut on the diagonal, it will curl during cooking. And as most stir-fries, prepare all of the ingredients ahead of beginning the cooking, as it will go very quickly once started.

This was excellent tomato beef curry! I basically made as written with just a few changes to suit our tastes. First, we love tomato beef curry chow mein, so I boiled and fried some chow mein noodles to add to this. To the meat marinade, I added some fresh garlic and ginger and marinated it for about 45 mins. Also, I added extra curry powder, ketchup, and soy sauce. Lastly, because I was adding chow mein noodles, I added about 1/2 c. beef broth with a little cornstarch added to make extra sauce to compensate for the noodles. We loved it! Thank you for sharing this wonderful is definitely a keeper! **Made for Culinary Quest - Suitcase Gourmets**
