30 ml (2 T) oil
750g stew­ing steak, cubed
3 onions, finely chopped
2 cloves gar­lic, crushed
5 ml (1 t) fresh gin­ger
20 ml (4 t) curry pow­der
5 ml (1 t) turmeric
15 ml (1 T) brown sugar
5 ml (1 t) lemon juice
salt and freshly ground black pep­per to taste
250 ml (1 cup) hot water
23 sweet pota­toes, peeled and cubed
1 can (410g) green beans (French cut), drained or fresh green beans, sliced
1 chilli (optional)

This is a very easy, quick and slightly sweet curry.


Heat the oil in a heavy-​based saucepan and brown the meat strips. Remove from the saucepan and set aside. Fry the onions, gar­lic and gin­ger in the remain­ing oil until ten­der and fragrant.

Return the meat to the saucepan and sea­son with curry pow­der, turmeric, brown sugar, lemon juice, and salt and black pep­per. Stir-​fry for about 5 min­utes. Add the water, reduce the heat and sim­mer for about 11 ½ hours or until the meat is nearly tender.

Add the sweet potato cubes and fresh green beans (if using) and sim­mer for another 25 min­utes or until the sweet pota­toes are ten­der. Add the canned green beans (if using) and sim­mer for another 5 min­utes until warmed through. Serves 68.

Serve with rice
