A great curry! I followed the recipe to the letter, most of my meals are curry, this one was spot on.
I'm Sri Lankan, this curry is as authentic as they come. If you don't have canned tomato you can sustitute chopped fresh tomato instead.
Fabulous recipe!! Excellent. I only alter it by reducing the cayenne a bit. This is defiantly a family favorite. Thanks for sharing it.
Perfection. I am a 20 year plus cook of Indian and Sri Lankan
food and this recipe is superb. Since I used a very inexpensive
beef cut, I did marinate the 3lbs of beef with 1/2 cup of
dry red wine, a couple cloves of garlic diced and salt and pepper.
I covered and placed in refrigerator for approx 3 hours. You may
not ned to do this but Wow what a curry. I bought my curry powder roasted from my neighborhood Indian supply shop and served with a high quality basmati rice. I live in Australia and we are blessed with fantastic spice shops, not sure how you would go in a small U.S mid-western town for supplies.
Try this recipe if you can, you will be delighted.
This "Sri Lanka Beef Curry" was as delicious as similar dishes I have had in restaurants. I made it as written except that I couldn't find pandan leaf, and used my pressure cooker to shorten the cooking time. I will definitely be making this again. Next time I make it I might be inclined to throw in some potato cubes and spinach since I generally like veggies in my stew (regardless of authenticity). Thanks Rob for sharing your recipe. REVIEW UPDATE: I now know that I can find pandan leaves in the refrigerator section of an Asian grocery store. Also, I would like to comment that my curry leaves tasted like tea leaves with all the flavor seeped out of them. The Indian grocer who sold them to me told me that they were mostly for aroma. I think it is safe to leave the curry leaves out of this recipe without spoiling the overall presentation in the case you can't find them. These are NOT the same "curry leaves" as used in Thai curries (kaffir lime leaves).
This curry was amazing! I let it cook a little longer to soften the beef a little more. The flavours as written are so good. Thanks for the recipe!
Delicious and authentic!
