Spicy Beef Curry in a Crock Pot

You know you're losing your mind when you're realize that you're begging your 14-week-old son to eat enough formula so that you can BOTH sleep through the night. People keep asking me how I find the time to cook and blog and I say "Well, I don't sleep much.". I really miss sleep.

This recipe is so hot that it's for people with very strong stomachs. If you don't have a strong stomach (I don't!) then skip the habaneros or use the mild ones.


1 lb of stew meat, cut into strips
1 14.5 ounce can of diced tomatoes
1 10 ounce can diced tomatoes and habaneros (hot)
1 tablespoon of curry powder
2 cloves of garlic, minced
2 beef bouillon cubes
1/2 cup of boiling water
1 teaspoon of ground ginger

  1. Add the beef bouillon cubes to the boiling water. Let dissolve.
  2. Add all of the spices and gravy packet to beef bouillon. Mix well.
  3. Pour bouillon/spice mixture into crock pot. Drain both cans of tomatoes. Add to crockpot.
  4. Add meat to crock pot. Cook on high for two hours or until meat is tender.

I love all kinds of curry - Thai, Indian, and my own variation but I have to admit I've never tried making curry in a crock pot. Thanks for sharing this recipe, I'm going to try in soon.
