Beef Curry


I absolutely adore spicy foods. This is spicy and my favorite beef curry. I think you will like it as well. It is very easy to prepare.



1˝  tablespoons olive oil
1     red or white onion, sliced
3     teaspoons curry powder
1˝  pounds lean boneless beef, cut into 1" cubes
˝   pound fresh mushroom, sliced
1     tomato, diced
1     clove garlic, minced
2     teaspoons salt
2     teaspoons sugar
2     cups water
2     tablespoons cornstarch
2     tablespoons water


Cooking Method

Heat oil in a heavy skillet. 

  1. Sauté onion over medium heat, just until tender. 

  2. Stir in curry powder, and cook 1 minute. 

  3. Add beef cubes.

  4. Add next 5 ingredients in order listed. 

  5. Continue cooking until beef is lightly browned (do not be concerned that the skillet is dry because moisture will appear from the ingredients). 

  6. Add enough boiling water to barely cover beef. 

  7. Cover skillet and simmer gently for 1˝ hours, or until beef is extremely tender.  

Thicken with 2 tablespoons cornstarch and 2 tablespoons water, mixed to form a paste.
