  • Pakistani-Style Beef Stew



    Making this overnight tonight in the slow cooker, using Ghee instead of vegetable oil.

    I'll let you guys know how it turns out, I'm kinda jazzed ;-)

    kuno what does cardamom taste like?? I've never used it before. Well, not that I can remember anyway.

      hanna,


      Think "Waffle Cone"??? They use ground Cardamom in that. Of course it is a lot different in a savory stew...but it still gives a sweet aroma, along with the cloves. It might sound weird, but they do this a lot in South Asian cuisine.

        I like it. A fun recipe to play with, though I'd probably go with lamb over beef as my protein "Waffle cone" is a great metaphor for the aroma of cardamon.


        Kuno - what do you use to eat this if rice and flatbread are out of bounds?

          Kuno, I made something similar last night with ground beef. Added some swiss chard to it for extra nutrients. I thought of you when I made fresh garam masala last night.

            Geoff,


            Coupla things. I agree with you on the Lamb, or even Goat---just a little pricey for me at the Halal store down the hill, so I went with Beef.


            It's for a dinner party, so I'm going to make rice for them, and Cauliflower "Rice" for me. (If I made Naan...I would HAVE to eat Naan!)


            I know the recipe looks a little daunting, but most of the ingredients are just spices. I'll be hella short of time tomorrow, so I'm putting it in the Slow Cooker tonight.


            Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm....Cardamom <3

              maba,


              I bow down before Thee...

              Thanks for thinking of me! We have to figure out a way to get together and cook sometime <3

                Goat&#39;s a strong call. 10 years in Miami gave me much respect for Caribbean curried goat.


                Cauliflower "rice" is a great idea. Thanx.

                    Just had some Buffalo ribs from the slow cooker tonight. Fabulous even unseasoned. Will the halal butcher cut you a deal on the goat ribs?

                      At this store, they always seem to hook me up ;-)


                      They&#39;ll weigh out and price a piece of meat, and then throw on another piece for free. I also end up with all kinds of spices and teas as extras in my bag.


                      I LOVE these guys!

                        You&#39;re making me jealous....Here the meat is weighed (and priced) by the ounce.

                          Oh, I made a trip to the Halal store today. Got some chicken for the hubs and goat for myself. I asked the butcher for brain + liver but he&#39;s given me heart + liver. I also got some bones. Have you had Paaya? The Boy would know about it, it&#39;s a broth made with bones and spices and it&#39;s lip-smackingly delicious. Kuno, I think I&#39;ll make my mum&#39;s goat pepper chops for you when we meet. I got the cauliflower rice idea from a South Beach Diet site.

                            Sorry...maybe they&#39;re just being nice to me because I amuse them by attempting Urdu ;-)

                              @maba: I&#39;ll be sure to ask him about Paaya- that sounds fantastic.


                              Ohhhhhhh... Pepper Goat Chops <drool>.
