Madras Beef Curry

09 Jan

My New Year’s Resolution this year was one new recipe a week.  I have a lot of cookbooks, and I often look through them as if they were novels, but I have a hard time following recipes.  I always add a little bit of this and a little bit of that. Not that it is a bad thing, but I thought maybe I should try to follow some recipes as they are written this year 🙂

This year I am trying to get out of my comfort zone with some of the recipes that I try.

This recipe was selected by Jamie.  Last week was his birthday so he selected the first new recipe for me to try.  When he showed it to me, I was pleased, as I have never cooked with curry before so this was going to be completely new for me.

This recipe was really easy.  Now I know that you can make your own curry paste, but I just bought a jar from the grocery store.  However, I think I want to try making my own, so I am considering buying a mortal & pestle.  I love buying new kitchen gadgets 🙂

This turned out to be delicious!  Where has curry been all my life?  It is so tasty, a bit spicy and full of flavour…Awesome!
