Japanese Style Curry Beef Brisket

Curry is tremendously popular in Japan.  If you ever been to a Japanese or Asian grocery store then you probably seen boxes or packages of Japanese curry. This specific curry is not like the curry based from India, Thai or other places.  It has a very English like stew taste to it with curry which I find very enjoyable and this recipe is one of my favorite comfort foods for any time of the year, especially during the winter.  For vegetarians, you can substitute the meat with one entire cauliflower cut into pieces. I love Japanese curry with meat or vegetarian style because it’s the curry sauce that really makes the meal shine regardless of how you make it.

This recipe makes 3-4  servings.

Ingredients:

4 Small carrots

2-3 Potatoes

1/2 of a Large onion of your preference

1.5 lbs Beef Brisket

1 Apple (optional: for making the curry sweeter)

1 package of  Japanese curry cubes (usually it comes in 2 packages in a box)

1/2 tsp Salt

1tsp Garlic powder

1/2 tsp Black pepper

1 1/2 tsp Potato starch

1 tsp of Olive oil

Directions:

1. First thing you’ll want to do is peel skin off of the potatoes, carrots, onions and apple, then cut them into small pieces and set them all aside.

2. Cut the beef brisket against the grain into small bite size pieces.

3. Marinate beef brisket with 1/2 tsp salt, 1tsp garlic powder, 1/2 tsp black pepper. 1 1/2 tsp potato starch and finally mix in 1 tsp of olive oil after everything as thoroughly mixed.

4. In a pot cook the beef for about 5 minutes or until it is brown and set aside temporarily.

5. In the same pot, add a little bit of oil and toss in all the vegetables and let them cook until you see the onions turn translucent.

6.  Then you will want to add 4 1/2 – 5 cups of water into the pot.

7. Add in the beef set aside from earlier back into the pot and finally 1 package of curry cube.

8. Bring the pot to a boil and then lower heat down medium low heat and let it simmer for 20-30 minutes with a lid over pot and stir occasionally.   (Optional: This is where you would also add in the apple and let it continue cooking)

You can serve this Japanese style curry beef brisket with pretty much anything but I prefer mine with rice, ramen or noodles!

As you can see I’m going to be enjoying this with brown short grain rice!

    I love Japanese curry. It is very different from a traditional India or Thai curry. I love it because the sauce is very sweet and usually contains such things as apple, honey or chocolate. It is also very kid friendly and not too spicy for them.

      Me too! I find that Japanese curry can also make a great vegetarian dish as well.

    Yes, the best part of a Japanese curry is usually the vegetables and the sauce.
