Beef curry is an Asian inspired Beef Stew/Sauce Recipe. It is simply braised beef slow cooked in Aromatic Spices. I uploaded a recipe for Jamaican Curry Goat in 2015, since then I’ve had numerous requests for a Beef version so, here we are.
Don’t be alarmed by the exhaustive list of ingredients, just try to use as many as you can source.
800g Beef With Bones diced into Chunks
1/4 Cup Coconut/ Vegetable Oil

Pour the oil into a wok or pan and place on medium heat. When the oil heats up, add the bay leaves, Cinnamon Powder, Black Pepper, Cardamon pods and Cloves. stir for a minute…
I forgot to add the Cardamon pods, it didn’t really affect the taste to be honest so feel free to skip this if you have trouble sourcing it.
Then, add the chopped Onions, Saute till the Onions brown a bit, do not burn…
Add, the Beef and saute for a minute…
Now, add the Minced Garlic and Ginger, the Coriander powder, Turmeric, Cumin powder, Chilli powder and Salt to taste..
Stir and combine, add the Yoghurt, leave to cook for 30 minutes, be sure to stir every now and then to prevent burning. Add 1 Cup of water if the moisture dries up too quickly.
After 20 minutes, add the chopped carrots and Potatoes..
Then two cups of water. Cover and cook for a further 40-50 minutes on low heat…
Then add the Spring Onions and Peppers…
Stir and combine and leave to cook for a further 4 minutes. Your Beef Curry is ready…
