You don’t have to order out to get a rich, thick Beef Curry in less than an hour. Try my Beef Soup Bone Curry Recipe. Here is another great reason to get yourself a pressure cooker. This dish is simple to prepare, yet the flavor is amazing and the beef tender.
Although this dish is perfect for my Paleo Diet, any lover of curries will lick their plate clean. The sauce is so thick and flavorful you will savor every spoonful.
2 tablespoons of beef lard or your favorite cooking fat
1 or 2 sweet potatoes or regular potatoes
several carrots and/or parsnips
1 medium onion
2 tablespoons curry powder
3 cloves of garlic
1 can coconut milk
1.5 to 2 pounds of soup bones with meat
1/2 pound ground beef (optional)
Heat the oil in the bottom of the pressure cooker.
Dice, then add the onions and garlic to the hot oil, stir frequently.
Once the onions and garlic are soft, add the ground beef. I added ground beef because I wanted more meat in the curry than the soup bones would provide.
Once the ground beef is browned add one cup of water, the curry powder(stir), the soup bones and all the potatoes and root vegetables.
Lock the lid on and bring the cooker up to full pressure. Once at full pressure, set the timer to 15 minutes and set heat to lowest setting while still maintaining full pressure.
After 15 minute at full pressure, remove from heat and let the pressure fall naturally.
Open lid, remove soup bones. Scrap out and bone marrow and place in the liquid. Cut up beef and return to the pot. Add one can of coconut milk and stir.
This is certainly one of my favorite Paleo Meals. It is all in one pot, easy to make – but tastes great. The leftovers are good too (if there are any). The pressure cooker really brings the flavor out of the bones and creates a rich broth, making the sauce flavorful.
Soup bones can be a little tricky to locate. Ask your butcher if they can get some for you. Or, check you local natural foods store, they often have these delicious cuts of beef.
To cultivate your love for the lesser know cut of beef and other meat, you should pick up a copy of The River Cottage Meat Book – you may just fall in love with meat all over again.
