Curry powder is not so popular in Philippine cuisine, but there are some dishes that calls for this spice specially the meat and vegetables curries. I cooked this Filipino style beef curry for my family to appreciate this spice, because for them the fragrant of curry powder is too strong, that is why I promised them to cook Filipino style curry making it lighter, and they were able to appreciate the dish.
1/2 kilo beef sirloin or tenderloin cut to your desired size
2 tablespoons ginger strips
2 tablespoons curry powder
1 small bell pepper
2 cups coconut milk
3 cloves garlic
salt and pepper to taste
water ( enough to make the beef tender)
1. Saute the ginger and garlic until brownish, then add the onion and curry powder, then simmer for a minute, add the beef then simmer for 5 minutes allowing the beef to absorb the curry flavor.
2. Add water and let boil until the beef is tender.
3. If it is already tender add the carrots, potatoes and bell pepper then simmer until done.
4. Add the coconut milk, salt and pepper to taste, simmer for 2 minutes and tun off the heat.
