Indonesian Style Beef Curry

Indonesian Style Beef Curry

By Tony DeLorger © 2011

The wonderful thing about curries is that they can be adapted to different styles and flavours. Over the years I’ve collected so many recipes from all over Asia and have loved trying to adapt those unique flavours into a style and a simplified process that can be accessed by anyone. You don’t have to spend hours trying to find speciality shop and can buy all spices readily in supermarkets. There are aspects of these recipes that would benefit from original ingredients, but I’ve thought it more important for everyone to share and enjoy.

I hope you enjoy this Indonesian style beef curry.
