Flavor was excellent.... but I'm not a fan of beef stew meat because no matter what it seems chewy or tough. I prefer using beef shank which I will use in the future when I make this. Read More

This is SO good, easy to make and full of flavor! I recommend browning the meat in batches, otherwise the pot is too crowded and the meat tends to steam. All I needed to add was a bit of salt at the end. If you don't want your veggies too soft, I suggest you cook the meat for 20-25 minutes under pressure, add in the veggies, then finish cooking for 10-15 more minutes. There was no indication on how to prepare the potatoes, so I peeled them and cut them into 1.5" chunks. The beef comes out so tender. This has the perfect amount of heat, not overly spicy at all. I garnished with some minced cilantro. Perfect! Read More

Absolutely delicious!!! The amount of flavor will depend on the type and quality of your curry mix. I only had one 13.5oz can of the tomato's so for the remaining liquid I used a can of coconut milk which was fabulous. Read More

Oh so good. I don’t have an instapot so I made it right on top of the stove and it turned out perfect!! Didn’t cook the beef all the way cause I knew it would cook while it was simmering and it was so tender!!! Will make again!!! Read More

I did not care for this at all. The curry taste was too strong and otherwise, I think it needed some other spices or something to give it more flavor. I could only eat a bit of it. Luckily my husband liked it better than I did and finished it the next day. But unfortunately we have a bunch in the freezer. The only thing I changed was to use a better cut of beef (chuck)- which was the best part. Very tender. Read More
