Simple Beef Curry

Simple Beef Curry created by susanmcnarn

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!

directions

  • Heat the oil over medium heat and saute the onion for about 3 minutes, or until translucent.
  • Add the garlic, curry, paprika, chili powder and salt. Cook, stirring constantly, for about 3 minutes.
  • Add the beef and stir.
  • Add 1/2 cup water and bring to a medium simmer. Cover, and cook for about five minutes.
  • Add enough water to cover the beef and cover once again.
  • Cook for 1-2 hours (adding water as needed), or until meat is tender and the sauce is thick.
  • Serve over rice and garnish with the parsley or the cilantro.

    Honestly I've eaten a few curry dishes and this was not very good. When I talked to my GF about it (whose parents make great curry) I mentioned the paprika and the chilly powder which she knew they did not use. I think maybe that's where this recipe goes off. I would look for another recipe without the chilly or paprika.

    I tried this today and it was so good. To lessen the time of cooking i used preassure cooker just 30minutes if a little bit watery just turn on the fire in medium heat snd stir slowly with chopsticks or spoon until you get the desired thickness of the sauce... Its so good 5 star for you... Im gonna share your recipe to my friends

    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.
