How to Prepare Curried Ground Beef Recipe

  1. Spice Infusion: Begin by sautéing 4 cloves of minced garlic and 1 teaspoon of grated fresh ginger in 2 tablespoons of cooking oil in a large deep skillet over medium heat for 1-2 minutes. Stir in 1 tablespoon of curry powder, 1 teaspoon of turmeric, and ¼ teaspoon of crushed red pepper (optional) for an additional minute.
  2. Beef Cooking: Add 1 pound of ground beef (with 15% fat or less) to the skillet and sauté until the beef is fully cooked.
  3. Potato Prep: While the beef cooks, peel and cut 1 russet potato into ½-inch cubes.
  4. Combine and Simmer: Add the cubed potato and 1 cup of beef broth to the skillet, stirring to mix with the ground beef. Increase the heat to medium-high, cover with a lid, and bring to a boil. Then, reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 10 minutes with the lid on, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are tender.
  5. Final Touches: After the potatoes are tender, remove the lid and simmer for a few more minutes until most of the broth has evaporated. Mix in 1 cup of frozen peas and heat through. Season with approximately ½ teaspoon of salt, adjusting to taste. Garnish with sliced green onions if desired, and serve hot.
