Shelly's Meat Curry

sassyangelkiwi Donna-Maree Aus

"This is a recipe dictated to me after much pestering from my best friend Shelly from Bangladesh who never writes anything down. The unique thing about THIS curry is that one day she accidentally used corned beef and it was FANTASTIC (you may use brisket beef or lamb instead), so I have adapted it to the recipe. Trust me, when you eat this beef curry you will never want to try another, it's THAT good!"

  1. In a pot, bring the basmati rice and 3 cups water to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 20 minutes.
  2. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Brown the corned beef in the saucepan, and cook the onion and garlic until tender. Season with ginger, turmeric, coriander, salt, chili powder, cinnamon, and cardamom.
  3. Place the bay leaves in the saucepan, and pour in 1 cup water. Bring to a boil. Mix in the potatoes, reduce heat to low, and simmer 30 minutes. Stir occasionally, and add more water as needed to keep the ingredients moist.
  4. Cover the saucepan, and continue cooking 10 minutes, until potatoes are tender. Serve the beef and potato mixture over the basmati rice.

I'm sorry to rate the recipe so poorly, but as written it is WAY too salty. I followed the recipe to the letter....with the exception of only putting in 1/2 as much salt....and it was still not ...

You must either WASH the corned beef and rinse, rinse, rinse, or use brisket!! The original used brisket, but i personally preferred the mistake so that's what i wrote. If you choose to use the...

Cut the salt down by half (at least!!!) and this is the perfect curry recipe for non-corned beef. I used round steak. It's probably great with chicken or just veggies too.

Very good dish. I didn't have coriander and I only put in 1\4th the salt. I added more vegies too.

I liked it. My boyfriend so-so. It is really a stew with curry flavour- nice comfort food. We added lots of veggies: eggplant, mushrooms, zuchini,cauliflower and lots of garlic. Added curry powd...
