I made up this recipe for ground beef curry a couple months ago - I wanted a really simple one pot meal one night when I was exhausted. This is a simple, quick and low maintenance dish that's great when you're down to the last of your groceries. You can eat it over rice, by itself, in a pita, or even on bread!

If you want to get fancy, serve ground beef curry with my pickled vegetables and cilantro on top! It makes it amazing.

Step 1: ingredients:

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 onion
  • 2 potatoes
  • 1 cup+ frozen peas
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 inch piece of fresh ginger
  • 1 14.5 oz can beef stock
  • 2 T tomato paste
  • 2-3 T garam masala (I normally just keep adding until it's tasty!)
  • 1/2 T chili powder
  • 1/2 T cumin
  • couple pinches cumin seeds (optional)
  • salt to taste
You can leave things like the ginger or cumin seeds out if you don't have them - they are optional but make it taste perfect! You can also substitute frozen hash browns for the regular potatoes if you want it done quicker - I did that the first time and it tasted great! Just make sure to included either a potato in the beef mixture of serve it over something starchy. Otherwise it can be a little liquid-y.
I made this for dinner tonight. Had to modify it a bit, didn't have peas. My kids cut up too many potatoes, so we made mashed potatoes along with the chunked ones that were in it. Very yummy. Ate entirely too much. :)
I want to make that now!
