Making freezer meals with beef stir fry strips is so fast. This Beef Curry recipe takes advantage of the speed that buying pre-cut meat enables, but packs a big flavour punch. It heats up in no time flat. This lets you get supper on the table so you can get on with the more important things in life…
…like watching reruns of Friends or catching up on that book you’re supposed to read for Book Club or checking out the latest Netflix show everyone has been talking about!
As you can tell, my priorities are getting my family fed so that I can move on to things that are more fun. I like to cook, but don’t want to have to spend hours in the kitchen every day.
After that brief commercial plug for sedentary pursuits, back to the beef curry!
Beef Curry Freezer Meal Recipe:
- 1 lb. beef stir fry strips
- 1/2 cup onion, chopped
- 1 cup red and yellow bell pepper, diced
- 28 oz. can diced tomatoes
- 1/2 cup curry paste*
- 3 tsp. sugar
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
*I prefer the Madras or Spicy curry paste, but use whichever one is your favourite.
Place the stir fry strips, chopped onion, diced peppers, can of tomatoes, curry paste, sugar, and cream in a large resealable bag. Squish together to combine the ingredients. Remove excess air, seal, and freeze.
On the day of cooking, thaw the bag. Either stir fry the bag contents on high heat until the beef is cooked through or cook in the slow cooker for 4-6 hours on low.
I love rich flavours and for me, the spicier, the better so I add more curry paste than the recipe calls for. Adjust the spice level according to your own preferences by adding more or less curry paste or by using a spicier or milder curry paste.
You can serve the beef curry alongside or on top of rice, wrapped up in flour tortillas or on its own. Garnish with fresh cilantro if desired.
