Beef Curry (Indian)

'' I like meat cooked with potatoes and this a recipe idea i got after reading some Indian recipes. The meat in the curry is tender and the gravy is very delicious''


450g stewing beef
Salt to taste
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 tsp red chili powder
1 tsp coriander powder
1 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp garam masala powder
1 tbsp vinegar
2 medium red onions
2 medium chilies
6 -8 medium garlic cloves
2 inch stick ginger
2 small tomatoes blended to a puree
2 medium potatoes cut in the 1'' pieces.
olive oil

Wash, drain and dry the beef. 
Marinate the beef with salt, black pepper, coriander powder, red chili powder, turmeric powder, garam masala powder and vinegar with the stewing beef.
Mix well and leave to marinate for 30 minutes.
Chop the red onions, green chilies, ginger and the garlic finely.
Heat a little oil in a pan.  Add the marinated beef and brown the pieces on all sides. Add water to the beef and Cover the pan and simmer the beef for 45 minutes to 1 hour till the beef becomes tender. (Make sure the water does not run dry as the meat will get harder if is too dry.) Half way through the simmering add the potatoes.

In a separate pan, heat some oil. Add the chopped red onions and saute till golden brown.
Add the green chilies, ginger and garlic. Saute till the onions get very soft. Add a splash of water if needed to avoid the onions getting burned.

When the onions are soft and browned add the cooked beef with the potatoes.Mix well. add water and pureed tomatoes to create gravy.
Cook another 10 minutes in low heat until the gravy is thick. Adjust seasoning. Serve hot.
