Stir-Fried Chinese Beef Curry Recipe
Chinese Style Beef Curry
This is not ordinary beef stir-fried from your local Chinese take away. Wonderfully flavored with spicy curry powder this easy-to-make stir-fry is great for chilly winter. I am fond of curry dishes but do not like the lengthy process of simmering them. I marinate beef slices in soy sauce, rice wine and broth to get tender meat and cut the cooking time. The result is flavorful beef morsels coated with exotic curry sauce. Although curry powder is not a common ingredient used in Chinese cooking, this dish is an exception.
I will take no time to fix Chinese beef curry stir-fried, yet it is a very superb dish when enjoyed with some rice or noodle. Next time you are craving for curry dishes, try stir-fried beef curry.
