Keema - Beef of the Indian variety.

I am trying to expand my horizons.  So I decided to try this recipe with the beef I had sitting and waiting for me....

Michelle's Keema
Serves:18
  • 2 onion, minced
  • 2 lbs ounces ground lean beef
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 4 large cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 firm, ripe tomatoes, diced
  • 2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 2 teaspoon Garam Masala
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh hot green chilies, or to taste
  • 4 cups frozen peas
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro, or to taste
  • Indian flatbreads (rotis) or tortillas, as an accompaniment

Directions

In a nonstick skillet set over moderately high heat, add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, 5 minutes. Add the beef, and salt and pepper to taste, and cook, stirring, until no longer pink. Add the garlic, tomatoes, gingerroot, Garam Masala, and chilies, and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes. Add the peas and continue to cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes more, or until flavors blend. Stir in the lemon juice and cilantro and correct seasoning, adding more salt if necessary. Either transfer to a bowl and serve with warm rotis or tortillas or spoon Keema down center of bread and roll up like a burrito

I made enough to be able to put 2 portions in the freezer. YUMMY!
