Lamb or Beef With Whole Spices and Onions

From Madhur Jaffrey's Step-by-Step Cooking. The recipe calls for lamb, but I used beef and thought it tasted fantastic. I didn't have black cardamom pods. I also substituted crushed red pepper flakes for the whole peppers. I used much less oil than called for and added 1/2 cup of beef broth for extra liquid.

  • Cut meat into 1-1.5 inch cubes and pat dry. Slice onions into thin slices. Peel and grate ginger.
  • Heat oil in large pot. Saute onions, stirring occasionally for 15 minutes. Remove onions and set aside.
  • Add the cardomoms, bay leaves, cumin, red peppers, peppercorns, and ginger to the pot. Stir for 1 minute until bay leaves darken and ginger is sizzling.
  • Add the meat and 1 t salt. Cook, stirring, for about 5 minutes until the liquid comes to a full boil. Cover, lower heat, and simmer for 1 hour and 10 minutes or until the meat is tender.
  • Add onions and cook, uncovered, over medium heat for another 3-5 minutes.
