I am always looking for new things to make in the crock pot and lately have been trying to find more Indian dishes. When I came across this I knew I could adapt to for us. Mostly I halved the recipe, but also broke out the mortar and pestle to freshen up the spices. Ironically this came out bland. Not sure why because it smelled WONDERFUL and the house was filled with spices but when you tasted it… nothing. I added extra salt and hot sauce and it was ok.
- 1 lb stew beef, cut into 1-inch cubes
- 1 Tbsp curry powder
- 6 cardamom pods
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp ground cloves
- 1/2 cup canned chopped tomatoes
- 1/2 medium red onion, diced
- 1 Tbsp tomato paste
- 1 tsp garam masala
- 1 tsp kosher salt
- 1 tsp fresh black pepper
In a mortar and pestle, combine all spiced and grind until at a fine consistancy
In a crockpot combine all ingredients
Cook over low heat for 8 hours or high for 5 hours.
Serve over rice and enjoy
