Total time
Serves: 4
  • 1½ to 2 pounds beef, sliced very thinly
  • 2 shallots, minced well
  • 8 cloves of garlic, minced well
  • 1 1-inch piece of fresh ginger, minced well
  • 2 tablespoons curry paste
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon olive or vegetable oil, plus more for cooking
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1½ teaspoons Garam Masala
  • 1 14 ounce can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 14 ounce can of diced tomatoes, drained
  1. Slice your meat as thinly as possible and place in a large, sealable bag or container. Combine the minced shallots, garlic, ginger, curry paste, vinegar, oil, brown sugar, and Garam Masala, then pour over the beef. Marinate for at least 2 hours, or as long as overnight.
  2. When you are ready to cook, heat 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil in a large pan. Add in the beef, along with the marinade, the chickpeas, and the drained diced tomatoes. Cook over medium-high heat for 5 minutes or so, until the beef is just cooked and the chickpeas and tomatoes are heated through. Do not overcook or else the beef will become tough. Serve over rice or steamed vegetables.
