I hope everyone is having an amazing week because I know I am. I’m that one optimistic friend you need in your life. And today I bring to you an amazing finger-licking beef stir fry. I love the fact that we are now normalizing recipe requests. To be honest I absolutely love them because you guys are the core reason for Marina’s Escapade’s existence.
This recipe as always is to die for. I had gotten this request a while back. Fried meat! I mean ever just had that craving for dry fry meat with chapati or rice or even fries. Personally, fries are always my go-to option. Haha! Friends are always asking how I eat so much fries and never grow fat. The truth is, I also don’t know.
Let’s begin, shall we?
- 3/4 kg of meat
- 2 large onions
- 2 ripe tomatoes
- 2 teaspoons of curry powder
- 2 teaspoons black pepper
- 2 teaspoons crushed garlic
- Salt to taste
So this is a really simple recipe but following the steps is what is so crucial.
- Boil your meat with curry powder, salt, and black pepper.
- Let the meat boil completely until there’s no water. (You’ll know it’s ready once you’ll start hearing like the meat has started frying)
- Once you reach this point let it continue until it starts turning golden brown then add some little oil (that’s I’d the meat didn’t have much fat in it. If it did, no need to add more oil. The fat will do its thing)
- Next, add the garlic then maybe if the salt was not enough you can add just a bit more)
- Let it all mix in with the garlic then add the tomatoes and let it simmer until they are (what can I say) completely crushed.
- Next, add in the onions. (Now the onions don’t need to cook for long cause we Wanna be able to feel the crunchiness of it)
- Just fry that for about 5 minutes. Make sure it is little or no stew from the tomatoes because the drier the better.
- Lastly, turn off the heat and add some Coriander to give it that pop of color. Just cover it for that moment before serving. It will cook with the steam.
So, just imagine that’s it. You are done. I told you it was simple. Serve with either rice or chapati even fries. Hell, you can even eat it just as it is.
I hope you love this recipe. Let me know how it turns out once you’ve tried it.
