Beef Vindaloo ( the Real Thing)

Beef Vindaloo ( the Real Thing) created by Rita1652

Hot, Hot, and aromatic. This recipe uses white wine vinegar and some sugar, and is unusual in that. This is a low fat version and therefore healthier than some recipes. You will need a grinder/blender or mortar and pestle to make this dish. Its a cracker. Ps. a glass of lager goes well with this.

    After frying everything we cooked this in a crock pot since we were cooking 5 different Indian dishes at a time and didn't have room on the stove for everything. Great flavor, but we weren't able to reduce the sauce down to make the nice thick gravy pictured, which was a shame. We used 2 red peppers plus a ghost pepper, and it had a little kick but not enough for us. Next time we'll do the full 5 red peppers plus a ghost pepper.

    This actually turned out pretty good. I haven't had the best of luck with cooking Indian food at home but surprisingly I enjoyed this one. I always imagined vindaloo being more reddish but the brown kind like in this recipe was great either way. I added extra water and cooked mine for about 2-2.5 hours to get the meat extra tender.

    I tried the receipe several times. It worked perfectly every time. The aroma, the texture of spices and most importantly the taste is fabulous!
