  • 300g Beef
  • 3 tbsp Curry powder
  • 1 tbsp Turmeric
  • 1 tbsp Thyme
  • 2 Thumbsize Ginger 
  • 4 Cloves Garlic 
  • 1 Handful Coriander  chopped
  • ¼ Teaspoon Cumin
  • ½ Teaspoon Cameroon pepper
  • 2 Stock cubes
  • 2 Plum Tomatoes  Chopped
  • 1 Scotch bonnet Chopped
  • 3 tbsp Sunflower or Vegetable oil
  • 1 Large Onion Chopped
  • Coconut milk or water
  • 150 g Carrot - sliced Optional
  • Salt
  • 1.5 tbsp Cornflour or 1 Potato


  • Cut the beef into bite size then add the garlic, ginger, cumin, cameroon pepper, curry powder, coriander and thyme. Cover with clingfilm and put in the fridge to marinade for atleast 2 hours. I normally leave to marinade overnight.
  • Add oil in a pot then add in sliced onions and Turmeric. Add in the marinated beef and brown the sides.
  • Add in chopped tomatoes and scotchbonnet, coconut milk or water and cover.
    Slow cook for about 45 minutes or till beef tender. Add in carrot and let cook for another 5
  • You can either thicken with potatoes or cornflour/water
    mixture. If using potato, peel it cut into 4 and add to the curry then cook for
    5-10 minutes till it's thickened to your desired consistency.
    If using cornflour, add water to the cornflour and mix till
    smooth then pour in the beef Curry. Simmer for 3 minutes then take off heat.
  • This is where you enjoy and savor the taste of
    this amazing, flavor packed beef Curry. You can eat it on it's own, serve with
    rice, bread, pasta or any other dish of choice.



If using Potato, Peel and cut into 4 before putting in the curry.
If using cornflour, mix with water into smooth texture before adding to curry
