White Boy Curry


At a bar this past weekend I was trying to impress some Indian girls, so I told them I could make a mean curry. At first the response was "Psh, white boy curry", but after I name dropped some ingredients, "white boy curry" went from an insult to a compliment! The funny thing is that this wasn't the first time someone has said this phrase to me. I decided I needed to give this title a meal to go with it. So what would be in White Boy Curry? Meat and potatoes of course. White boys around here seem to love marinated steak tips, and also pairing meats with peppers and onions. Mix in a bit of curry paste and you have a great dish.

Paste ingredients.

Plus curry powder. Normally when I make curry paste I cook the onions down , but uncooked curry pastes can be tasty too! I kinda wanted everything to have a bit of a fresher feel for this weird hybrid curry.

Can't make white boy curry without sippin on a light beer.

The tips are marinaded in worcestershire, garlic, sugar, molasses, and vinegar. All the usual suspects.

After searing the steak, you end up with this delicious caramel sauce in the pan.

Throw the potatoes in next.

Peppers and onions, then the paste goes in.

All the marinade then goes in and is boiled down a bit. Finally add the meat back in and finish it with some sour cream! Sour cream in curry? Yep!

This came out great! It really did taste like steak tips. And curry. And a little fajita-y

½ an onion, 5 cloves garlic, 2 inches ginger, 3 jalapenos, and 1-2 tablespoons of curry powder (homemade is best). Puree this to make the curry paste. Marinade sirloin tip steak in ½ cup worcestershire, ¼ cup cider vinegar, 1 clove grated garlic, 2 tablespoons sugar, 2 tablespoons molasses, salt and pepper for an hour. Set the marinade aside and cook the meat in a hot pan to sear it on all sides. Remove from the pan and set aside. You will notice the juice in the pan is beginning to bubble up and look like caramel. Add some sliced potatoes and cook. Stir often to coat the potatoes and sear them a bit. After a few minutes add sliced peppers and onions Cook this down for about 10 minutes, stirring and scraping the pan. Dump in the curry paste and cook 3 minutes. Add the reserved marinade and bring to a boil. Return the meat to the pan. Add about a half cup of sour cream and kill the heat. Serve with rice and cilantro.


How does your curry paste, containing 1-2 tablespoons of BRIGHT yellow curry powder stay green?

Definitely going to bookmark this for later, looks delicious! Can flank steak be used, or should I stick to skirt?
