DIRECTIONS

  • Cut the onion into bite-sized pieces. Cut the carrot into 3/4 inch (2cm) half rounds. Finely chop the garlic and ginger.
  • Heat the oil in a pan. Before it gets very hot, add the garlic and ginger, and saute until fragrant. Add the onion and carrot, and saute another minute or so.
  • Add the water, cover the pan, and simmer 10 minutes, until carrot becomes soft. Remove the pan from heat and add the curry roux, stirring until it is completely dissolved. (I found it best to break sections of the roux in smaller pieces and place one of them in a seperate bowl to pour some hot broth on it from the heat to melt it evenly before stirring it back into the big pot.)
  • Return the pan to the fire and add the beef, one slice at a time, as this makes it more tender. Stir well and cook until heated through.
  • Serve with hot white rice and garnish with little Japanese red pickles and or Japanese pickled scallions; purchased at most asian markets--compliments the dish with its sweet/salty flavor with a crunch. (Optional).
