Ground Beef Japanese Curry

Ground Beef Japanese Curry with RiceHonestly, it's too bad K doesn't like curry. I don't know what's wrong with him. He'll have a couple of bites. MAYBE 5 tiny tiny little pea size bites so it's really 2 bites anyway.Even when it's butter chicken, he won't eat it. Weirdo. It might have something to do with that crazy spicy curry I had a month before he left the womb. Yeah, let's blame that, shall we? :)

Hubby loves Japanese curry though. Same with soon-to-be-bro-in-law, so it's definitely one of the things I'll have as backup on those nights when I have no clue what to make for dinner. And now that my sis and her other half live so close, I typically make dinner for them too (for now anyway until they settle down).


Ground Beef Japanese Curry

  • 4 lbs lean ground beef

  • 3 cups water
  • 2 Tbsps canola oil (optional)
  • 1 cup frozen peas (optional)

  3. Stir in remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil then lower heat. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
