While it may not be a traditional curry (FIL just gave me a Curries cookbook), for hubby's birthday this past weekend, I got adventurous and made something totally new (hoping everyone would like it). I don't even know what real curries are. I guess that is why he gave me the cookbook.
I cut up several pieces of chuck steak (really it was small pieces of what would have been chuck roast and threw it in the crockpot with with a chopped green pepper and chopped onion, plus a little water and 3 teaspoons of curry powder. I cooked it on high for about 3.5 hours and when I returned from the skincare party my friend hosted that afternoon, I made rice and Ciabbatta rolls that I had in the freezer.
Hubby loved it (yeah - good birthday meal!)! Kids loved it (yeah - that means I can make it again!). I loved it (yeah- means I will make it again....that just doesn't happen if I don't like it, dontcha' know?). I'll even make it when you visit, if you want me to........
BTW, even FIL loved it. He came out to give the kids an entire set of (almost new) Encyclopedia Britannicas that the library was getting rid of. They are now occupying the entire bottom shelf of one of our large bookshelves. Hopefully they will get more use here, than they did at the library.
