It’s been awhile since I’ve tried and posted a new recipe but this past week I decided to try two curry recipes.
This paleo Indian Ground Beef Coconut Curry was found over at My Heart Beets (cute name, no?)
I enjoy the taste of spices that are used in Indian foods. My taste buds explode with the taste of these flavors.
It sometimes looks as if you’re only using a small amount of the spices but you really don’t need too much.
I used three very large cloves of garlic as I’m not afraid of the taste of lots of garlic. My one fear was using a red onion as they can be very very potent.
My fears were relieved when the recipe said to brown the red onion as that would help to mute the bold flavor. You can use a regular onion for this recipe if you prefer and it should come out fine.
The original recipe calls for a serrano pepper and two sprigs of curry leaves which I did not use. If you want a really spicy curry you should probably add those. They also use homemade meat masala and I just used garam masala from a bottle.
Once everything was blended together the smell was, well, peaceful. It just left a sense of calmness in my hurried soul. Food that comforts tends to have that effect on me.
After adding the coconut milk, the recipe comes out like a thick beefy soup.
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I did. We had plenty of leftovers and a couple of days later the recipe tasted quite as good.
This can be served on a bed of rice or lettuce or just in a bowl by itself.
