African Beef Curry

I am in LOVE with curry...I've never had curry at a restaurant, but have only ever made it. I know there are different types of curry too. I found this recipe while reading a cookbook my mom let me borrow...I place it all in the crock pot and the smell alone would have made me, except the beef was raw! So I'll try to be patient for dinner to be fully cooked!

African Beef Curry- from Taste of Home Recipe Collection 2009
1 lb beef stew meat
1 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes
1 or 2 red or green pepper(s)(I only used one)
1 onion, sliced
1-2 tbsp curry powder

Place all ingredients in slow cooker and stir well. Cook on low for 8-10 hours until beef is tender. I will be serving this over jasmine rice.

**While this smelled really good cooking, all day long, there was something missing. I am not sure what and I'll have to try another recipe. There was just not enough flavor...the coconut I sprinkled on top helped though. If anyone has any suggestions please let me know. I haven't experimented enough with curry to know what will go with it. I do make a really good peach/citrus curry but not sure how well that will go with beef.


  1. I've never had curry before actually. Can't wait to see what you do to make it more to your liking

  2. Chicken with curry and mustard is wonderful served over it!

  3. ooo... I love curry & I love the crock-pot. I am going to add this to next weeks meal plan! Thanks for sharing!
