Beef Curry


  • 240g lean braising steak cut into chunks
  • 2 medium onions chopped
  • 1 peppers, any colour deseeded and chopped 2 carrots
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 tbsp curry powder
  • 2 cans chopped tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp mango chutney
  • 2 tbsp tomato puree
  • 200g easy cook long grain white rice



  1. Brown the beef in a large saucepan or flameproof casserole dish over a low heat. Add the onion and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Add the peppers, carrots and garlic. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring often to stop it from sticking, adding a little water if necessary.
  3. Add the curry powder and s/r well to mix, then add the tomatoes, mango chutney, 300ml water and the tomato puree. Cover and simmer gently for about 1 1⁄2-2 hours, or until the meat is tender, adding more water if necessary.
  4. About 15 minutes before serving, cook the rice according to packet instructions. Serve with the curry. Tip 1: For a vegetarian version, use soya chunks instead of beef.
