Japanese Beef Curry

Posted June 24th, 2009 in Food 2 Comments »

You don’t need to go out for a delicious Japanese curry.  You can simply cook it at home.

  •   1 pack Japanese curry roux
  • 500g casserole beef 
  • 1 onion
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 potato
  • steamed rice to serve
  1. Cut beef into cubes.  Dice onion, carrot and potato into chunky pieces.
    Place potato in a bowl and cover with cold water to stop discoloration.
  2. Heat 1 tbs of oil in a sauce pan.  Seal beef over medium high heat, and add onion and carrot.  Stir, and saute over medium to low heat.
  3. Once onion start to look transparent, add 5 and 1/4 cups of water.  Add potato and turn the heat up to bring to boil.  
  4. Turn down the heat to very low, and simmer for 20 – 30 minutes.  Stir occasionally.
* You can simmer curry over very low heat longer than 30 minutes.  It makes curry taster if you stew awhile.
In Japan, we even cook curry the day before eating.  Longer you rest curry, deeper the flavor develops.
