This wasn't quite as quick a lunch as I had hoped for but it was a totally different use of ground beef than just the usual. Fairly well flavored but needed more heat so I added about 1/2 t of sriracha. Served it to DH over rice noodles and myself over pasta. Rice noodles were clearly the better choice. Sprinkled with cilantro, it was a very decent dish!
5 stars all day every day Redsie. What a great recipe. Made as written but used green onions and red sweet onions instead of the leeks. I can't get those here now... I went with what I had. They worked great in the dish. It was delicious, soft and gentle. I served it over basmati rice and garnished with toasted coconut, shredded candied ginger, sliced green onions, cilantro and sesame seeds. What a memorable meal, I can't wait to make this again. Thanks so much for sharing.
This is a very delicious recipe! I like to make it a bit more spicy by adding red chili paste and sometimes substitute onions for the leeks. I make it a few times a month, as my boyfriend and I just love it :) update: added mushrooms along with a tablespoon of curry powder, and a tablespoon of minced ginger and it definitely gave it the flavor that I was looking for. :)
This is very good; I'm adding it to our list of recipes to make again. I made a few very minor changes: substituted onion for leek (hard to find here), curry powder for paste, forgot the brown sugar, and a dab of anchovy paste stood in for the fish sauce. I added freshly grated ginger. Served over jasmine rice, it was quick and very tasty. Next time I will reduce the tomato sauce.
oh gosh this is so good! I made a few amount adjustments to this, I increased the amounts on the garlic, curry paste, and used 2 onions in place of the leeks, I also added in 1 tablespoon crushed red chili flakes (the hotter the better!) this was made as a take-home meal for my DS and was thoroughly enjoyed, thank you Reds, I will be making this again soon!
