For once in my life, I’m at a loss for words. Just take a moment to click on that photo above and zoom in on all the delicious bits. Oh my good God, this meal was nothing short of absolutely magical. I mean, if there is a God, he would definitely have this on his rotating menu.
Today, I give you beef over curry-spiced rice, the best meal ever. Served over a light and fluffy bed of fragrant, Vadouvan-seasoned rice, the beef and carrots also get dynamic flavor from the spicy, sweet, and savory Indian tomato chutney they cook with in the pan. To bring it all together, I finished the dish with a dazzle of bright, creamy cilantro sauce. My mouth is still watering!
Ingredients for the best meal ever
- 10 oz Ground Beef
- ½ cup Jasmine Rice
- 6 oz Carrots
- 1 Lime
- 2 Tbsps Savory Tomato Chutney
- ¼ cup Sour Cream
- ⅓ cup Cilantro Sauce
- 2 tsps Vadouvan Curry Powder
Recipe for the best meal ever
In a small pot, combine the rice, half the curry powder (you will have extra), a big pinch of salt, and 1 cup of water. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook, without stirring, 12 to 14 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Turn off the heat and fluff with a fork.
While the rice cooks, wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel the carrots. Halve lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Quarter the lime.
While the rice continues to cook, in a large pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the beef and sliced carrots; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally and breaking the meat apart with a spoon, 6 to 7 minutes, or until the beef is lightly browned and the carrots are slightly softened. Add the tomato chutney and 2 tablespoons of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the carrots are softened and the beef is cooked through. Turn off the heat. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
While the beef cooks, in a bowl, combine the sour cream, cilantro sauce, and the juice of 2 lime wedges. Serve the cooked beef and carrots over the cooked rice. Top with the sauce. Serve with the remaining lime wedges on the side. Enjoy!
