Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add onion; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low and continue cooking and stirring until the onion is very tender and dark brown, 15 to 20 minutes more.

  • Stir in the garlic, green chiles, ginger paste, cardamom seeds, cloves, and cinnamon sticks. Cook and stir until the garlic begins to brown, 3 to 5 more minutes.

  • Mix cumin, coriander, turmeric, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, and water into the onion mixture. Simmer until most of the water has evaporated and the mixture has thickened.

  • Stir in beef chuck pieces until coated with spice mixture; simmer over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until the beef is cooked through and tender, about 1 to 1 1/2 hours.

Editor's Note:

Use 5 to 6 small green chile peppers, such as Thai chiles; if they're unavailable, substitute 2 to 3 serrano chiles or to taste. Use rubber gloves when chopping chile peppers.

Slow Cooker Directions:

Follow steps 1 and 2. Place the onions, spice mixture, and 1/2 cup water in the slow cooker; reserve the remaining water. Add the beef and cook on Low for 8 to 10 hours or on High for 4 to 6 hours (you may brown the beef in the skillet first, if you wish). Add reserved water if you like a thinner consistency of curry.

Pressure Cooker Directions:

Cook the onions and spices in the pressure cooker instead of the skillet; add the beef in Step 4 and seal the lid. Bring to high pressure and cook until beef is tender, about 40 minutes. Allow pressure to release naturally after cooking.
