I found this recipe on the internet. I enjoyed it tremendously. I was asked to post the recipe so here it is. Preparation and cooking time I gave are appropriate because I didn't time it when I cooked this dish.
- 2 lbs beef stew meat
- 3⁄4 teaspoon salt (or more according to your taste)
- 1 teaspoon turmeric
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 2 small onions, finely chopped
- 5 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 teaspoon ginger, minced
- 1 teaspoon cumin
- 2 teaspoons curry powder
- 1 tablespoon coriander
- 1 tablespoon paprika
- 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1 teaspoon cardamom
- 1 tablespoon fresh cilantro
- 2 large sweet potatoes, peeled, diced into 1/2 inch pieces
- 4 cups water
- In a bowl, mix beef, salt and turmeric. Heat oil in a pot on medium heat.
- Add onion, garlic and ginger and saute 3 minute
- Add the beef mix and spices and saute 5 minute
- Add the water, cover and simmer until beef tender.
- Add potatoes and simmer another 20 minute.
- Serve over top of rice or as a stew with Nana bread.
- Note: If your curry is a bit on the bitter side, add a pinch of sugar (or more to your liking) when adding the sweet potatoes.
This was really delicious and flavorful. I was intrigued by the combination of ingredients, and they blend together so perfectly. The aroma in the house while this was cooking was fantastic. I simmered the beef for about an hour before adding the sweet potatoes, which I cooked for another 30 minutes. I did end up adding salt, and I think I could reduce the water next time. I will be making this again. Thanks for posting this. Made for Everyday's a Holiday Tag Game.
