Hi, Ray here again.
Time to try out another beef curry recipe form the Curry Focus website and this time it is Jim’s Beef Curry recipe. I don’t know who Jim is but he must be pretty smart to come up with a great curry recipe.
My local supermarket had a special on diced beef so I didn’t even have to chop up the beef. And all of the fat had already been trimmed off so I didn’t even have to that small task.
I already had all of the ingredients except for the beef so the shopping trip was pretty quick.
The recipe has more than the average number of ingredients but was easy to follow.
As usual, I prepared and measured all of the ingredients before starting the cooking. I have small dinner plates with the correct amount of spices so I can just add them to the curry when the time to add them has been reached – I’m more comfortable doing this than measuring the spices whilst the cooking is underway.
I started the cooking about 90 minutes before dinner was due to start.
It didn’t take long to get the spices, garlic and onions cooked and then in went the beef pieces to get sealed.
Then in went the salt and stock and the main 60 minutes simmering was underway.
I partially cooked the potatoes while the beef was simmering and settled down with a beer as the dinner guests arrived – they can smell a curry cooking from a long distance.
Soon I was adding the partially cooked potatoes to the curry and then started to microwave the basmati rice.
Before too long the tomatoes went into the curry and then everything was ready.
I served up Jim’s Beef Curry on the rice and presented it to the ever-hungry diners.
Now this is a great curry, even if I do say so myself. The beef was lovely and tender and had a great texture with no gristle to chew on. The curry had a great flavour and everything was cooked to perfection.
Jim’s Beef Curry was awarded an excellent score of 8 out of 10 with a heat rate of “medium to hot”.
If you like a spicy beef curry then this recipe is definitely one for you.
