I just made the best curry out of a leftover hunk of roast that had been in the fridge a bit long and gotten a little stringy and dry
(My houseguests over the long weekend were mostly vegetarian and not interested in beefiness so it didn't get any love.)
So, I took the solidified fat at the top of the crockpot (which had taken over my fridge) and put that in a pan to melt, chopped up the beef into cubes along with the onions, garlic, and bell peppers that it had been stewed with originally. Saute that around stirring in a bit of coconut cream and some vindaloo seasoning mix spiked with some extra turmeric. Presto, a boring old dry roast becomes juicy flavorful spicy curry.
Quite good. <sluuuuurrrrpp!> I will have to make this more often. I still have a few hunks of beef from that disappointingly tough 1/4 cow I bought a while back. This would be a good way to use those up.
