Ok I remember being in SA and eating tons of curry, anything from chicken to beef and my favorite shrimp or crab curry. OMG my mouth waters just at the thought.
So anyway, this weekend I made beef curry. I'm going to post the recipe here, again please remember I don't usually measure, I just eyeball.
1 lb cubed steak cut into bite size pieces
1 1/2 tbsp. curry powder (make sure it's a good one, mine is from south africa)
1 tbsp olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
2 medium tomatoes, chopped
1 bay leaf
1 tsp crushed garlic
salt and pepper to taste
1 can of coconut milk
Put the olive oil in a pan, add the steak, onions, tomatoes, curry powder, bay leaf and garlic, salt and pepper to taste. Add about 1/2 cup of white wine. Stir and simmer for about 20-30 minutes or until meat is cooked. Remember to keep adding a bit of water so it won't dry out completely.
When meat is done, add the can of coconut milk and continue cooking for about 5 minutes or until heated through.
Serve with white rice. Now here is something that my family back home always does. On the side we have a bunch of small plates with different toppings to add to the curry. Coconut, sliced bananas and green peppers, chopped into small pieces. Try it, believe it's DELISCIOUS!
