Japanese-Style Curry (*Karei Raisu*)
Hi everyone! Today I am going to show you my recipe for Japanese-Style Curry (*Karei Raisu*).
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 large yellow onion, thinly sliced into half moons
- 1 pound boneless fatty beef (such as chuck, short rib, or belly), cut into 3/4-inch pieces
- 1/2 pound carrots (about 2 medium), peeled and roughly chopped into irregular 3/4-inch pieces
- 1/2 pound russet potato (about 1 small), peeled and roughly chopped into irregular 3/4-inch pieces
- 5 ounces medium-hot Vermont Curry (7 pieces; see Note)
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 6 cups cooked short- grain white rice, hot
- Heat the butter and oil in a medium pot over medium-high heat until the butter melts and bubbles. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until it’s translucent and slightly wilted, about 5 minutes. Add the beef and cook, stirring occasionally, just until the pieces are no longer pink on the outside, about 5 minutes.
- Add potatoes and carrots, stir well, and add 7 cups of water. Bring the water to a boil over high heat, skim off any froth that appears on the surface, then reduce the heat to maintain a strong simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the beef is very tender, about 1 hour. Add the curry paste and salt and continue cooking, stirring and scraping the bottom frequently, for 15 minutes more. To store, cool to room temperature and keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
- Divide the rice among shallow bowls, spoon on the curry, and serve immediately.
