Prime’s Beef Curry v1

Hello everyone! We’ve been eating a lot of Thai and Indian delivery curry dishes at the Pretty Kitty Palace (Prime’s house). So I decided to do a curry this weekend for Mason and I while the roommates are at Burning Man. I started it about an hour ago and the kitchen is slowly filling with a lovely aroma. I can’t wait to taste this tonight. For those that want to play at home, here is what I made (with mega picture uploads and music!)

Prime’s Beef Curry

  • 2 lb Beef Boneless Chuck Roll (though any beef cut would probably be okay)
  • 32 oz Beef Broth
  • 1 sweet Walla Walla onion (any sweet onion is fine, I’m a fan of the local Walla Wallas though)
  • 2 tsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp chopped garlic
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp ground pepper corn
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 tsp sweet paprika
  • 1/2 tsp all spice
  • 1 1/2 tsp garam masala
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 5-6 chopped red potatoes

No special instructions really. Pour some of the beef broth in the crock pot. Cut the beef in to bite sized (I’m lazy, so they are about two bites worth each) and toss it in. Cut the onion into slivers and toss it in. Toss all the herbs and spices in and pour about half of the beef broth in to partially combine the herbs and spices. Cut the potatoes in to bite size pieces and layer those on top of the beef. Pour the rest of the beef broth in and set the crock pot on low for 8 hours.

If you need pictures, I just happen to have some!  Lots actually!

Update Post Dinner: The dish didn’t turn out as curryific as i was hoping, but the beef fell apart and had a wonderful India spice type flavor that was pretty tasty. I mashed up the potatoes with a little butter and half and half which also had an allspice/cinnamon flavor infusion. I made some basic white rice to put the beef over and a side salad. All in all, it was pretty good, though I think it could have either used a bit more of a bite of hot spicy goodness or added yogurt and tomato paste to make it into more of a stew. Regardless, it was pretty darn good and Pretty Kitty Palace smells amazing still.
