Beef Curry


This is one of my favourite recipes. I got it from my old Home Economics textbook ‘Cookery the Australian Way’. You can make it as hot as you want simply by varying the amount of curry powder. It’s easy to make and could be made in a slow cooker with a cheap cut of meat. It’s a great meal for a cold winters night.

The ingredients are:

500g steak
1 tbs fat
1 onion, diced
1/2-1 tbs curry powder
1 tbs coconut
2 tbs flour
1 apple, diced
1 banana, diced
2 tsp tomato paste
2 tbs fruit chutney
1 tsp lemon juice
1 1/2 cups beef stock
salt and pepper to taste
1 tbs sultanas


Melt the fat (or heat the oil) in a frying pan and cook the beef until brown. Remove from frying pan and drain on absorbent paper. Cover and keep warm.


Add the onion, curry powder and coconut. Fry for 2 minutes then add the flour and cook for a further minute.


Add all other ingredients and stir until boiling. Add the meat and return to the boil then simmer for 1 to 1 1/2 hours or until the meat is tender.


Serve on a bed of basmati rice.
