One pot Beef Curry with Red Tractor Beef & Lamb

Having quite a few mouths to feed every day, one-pot meals have recently become my favourite meal to make. They are something you can put into the one dish in no time at all, pop into the oven and enjoy quality time with the family as it cooks.

We’re quite a busy family, from my partner being out at work, school runs and not forgetting that I am a stay at home working Mum too. So having these one-pot meals are a bit of a lifesaver and allow us all to take a timeout to live a little slower.

We’ve got involved in the new campaign from Red tractor Beef & Lamb to celebrate the trend of slow cooked food. It’s the #liveslow campaign to help families remember those traditional cooking ways and whilst preparing a meal for your family, being able to enjoy life at a slower pace as it cooks nicely in the oven {or slow cooker}.

Beef curry is a firm favourite in this house and it’s so amazing being able to dish it out to everyone. Once upon a time {and still every so often} my fussy 7yr old would demand a completely separate meal to be made.

But even he is a beef curry fan nowadays, so finding one-pot meals that even he can enjoy is a huge win in my eyes. Also, in Super Busy Mum style I am one of those Mums that is always cooking far too much {and could quite easily feed the five thousand!}, so it’s lovely to be able to store the leftovers for a few days for others to enjoy {or for the partner to use as lunches for work!}.



800g of beef steaks, cut into 1in strips

Use half of the oil and heat in up in a frying pan. Add the steak pieces and cook until browned. Place the steak pieces into your oven dish {or slow cooker}. 

Use the remaining oil to fry up your onions and after a few minutes adding your chilli & ginger, frying for a further few minutes. Add your remaining spices. fry for another minute and then add the contents of your pan into your oven dish {or slow cooker}. 

Add your chopped tomatoes to the oven dish {or slow cooker}, then use the same can, fill it with water and add that also to your oven dish {or slow cooker}. 

Stir everything together, pressing it all down gently so that everything is well combined and covered in the liquid. Cook for 2-3hrs on a medium heat {180 degrees}.

Around half an hour before serving, add your garam masala, yoghurt and seasoning. Return to the oven to cook for a further 30 minutes.
