Japanese Tomato Beef Curry

This Japanese tomato beef curry really requires very few ingredients and uses kitchen staples you already (should) have. Japanese curry roux (a must), onions (how could you not), butter (duh), and water (I'd be scared for you if you didn't have any).

By caramelizing (for a lack of better way to describe than) a disgusting amount of onions, you achieve a sweet and jammy curry.

I love using my favorite brand of curry roux, java curry because it's a bit spicier and the spices are more pronounced than other brands.

Here's an amazon link to purchase it for those who wanna check it out!

Ingredients

  • 1 packet Japanese Curry Roux
  • 250g thinly sliced beef
  • 2 large onions
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp neutral oil
  • 1 can whole tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp ketchup
  • 500mL water or stock (add more depending on consistency)
  • Salt & Pepper to season

Directions

1. Melt 1 tbsp butter and oil in a heavy-duty pot.

2. Caramelize the onions on medium-low heat stirring constantly. This should take around 30 minutes.

3. Once the onion has caramelized, add the beef and cook until it gets color.

4. Add tomatoes and water to deglaze the pot. Scrape the bottom of the pot. (Alternatively, add pureed tomatoes if you prefer a smoother consistency)

5. Once the mixture comes to a rolling boil, add the curry roux packet. Mix to combine. 5. Add ketchup and finish off with butter. Serve with white rice. Enjoy!
