What's for Dinner? Curried Hamburger

This is what we had for lunch at Mentoring Moms the other day.

Everyone asked for the recipe because it is so easy and delicious.

This dish is also known as Pakistani Kima and is adapted from the More-With-Less Cookbook and everyone loved it.  Yummy!

A quick and easy hamburger curry the whole family will love.  Great use for leftover baked potatoes.

Saute in a skillet:

3 Tbsp coconut oil or butter

1 Cup onion, chopped

Brown 1 lb of hamburger or ground meat with the onion mixture

Stir in:

1 Tbsp curry powder

1 1/2 tsp salt

dash pepper, cinnamon, ginger, and turmeric, (cayenne if you like hot and spicy)

1 clove garlic, minced

1 – 14 oz can diced tomato or 2 Cups tomato

2 – potatoes,  diced

Cover the mixture and simmer for 25 minutes or until the potatoes are tender.

Add 2 cups petite peas or cut green beans. Heat through.  Serve with brown rice.

Garnishes: (Optional)

Diced green onions, or chopped cilantro, sour cream, diced cashews

  • Marilyn,

    This is our family’s most favorite dish! I take it to new moms when they have a baby and we serve it to company whenever we have someone over. I too have adapted it so my version is a bit different than yours. I am struggling though b/c I have always used Penzeys’ mild curry and I would like to be able to make my own. I wonder if you have a good recipe for a mild sweet curry?

    In the interest of sharing, perhaps you would like a recipe that I just posted:

    I just saw a recipe in the Taste of Home cookbook I just received for how to make your own curry. 3 cardomon seeds, 2 t ground coriander, 2 t ground cumin, 1 t ground turmeric, 1/2 t chili powder, 1/2 t pepper, 1/8 t fennel seed. combine in spice grinder to a fine powder. store in an airtight container for up to one year. Yields: 2 Tablespoons

    We made this on Monday night with venison and LOVED it. It was especially easy to make too. Thank you so much for the recipe.
