Tonight's meal was a comforting pot of curry. I'm sure everyone has had curry out of a box. Even since I was a little girl I always thought my mom made THE BEST curry. Little did I know, it was instant curry out of a box. Now that's just cheating. But then again, it's easy, yummy and gets dinner on the table in a flash so I don't blame her. I think I'll always use this boxed curry when I'm craving it and don't want to deal with the hassle of making it from scratch, but I think my next venture will be a home made one.
Golden Box Sauce Mix by S&B - 5 servings
Cube 1 ½ lb of lean beef, chicken, lamb or shrimp and finely chop 1 onion. Brown the meat and onion in a pan for 3 minutes. When onions have browned add a selection of other desired vegetables such as carrots, celery and green pepper.
Add just enough water to barely cover all the ingredients. Remember, you can always add more water if your curry is too thick. If you add too much water-like I did, you can boil it down to your desired consistency. After you add the water, bring the ingredients to a boil. Simmer until the meat is tender (maybe 10 minutes) When the meat is tender, add Golden Curry Sauce Mix to the pan and simmer for 5 minutes. Serve with rice.
