  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil divided
  • 2 1/2 pounds chuck roast cut into bites sized pieces
  • kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 large yellow onion diced
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 tablespoons of ginger minced
  • 2 tablespoons curry powder
  • 28 ounces diced tomatoes
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice


  • Heat the oil in a heavy bottomed pot until it just begins to smoke.
  • Generously salt and pepper the chuck roast, then add the chuck roast and brown in batches. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  • Add the onions and sauté until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic, ginger, and curry powder. Cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  • Add in the diced tomatoes and the lemon juice, scraping up the browned bits.
  • Return the browned beef to the pan. Bring to a simmer and cook covered for 45 minutes. (If you are making with rice, now is the time to start your rice.)
  • Serve over rice and enjoy!
