Kyrgyzstan - Kuurdak

Kyrgyzstan is a landlocked country in Central Asia. I've chosen this meat stew to make today which was traditionally made with organ meat cut into chunks. I went for beef instead, hah!


1lb beef
1 onion
1/4 cabbage
1 green pepper
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon paprika
2 bay leaves
2 tablespoons tomato puree
1 cup water

Brown the beef in 2 tablespoons of oil.

 Slice up the onion, green pepper and cabbage.

When the meat is done add all the other ingredients to the pan.

Partly cover with a lid and simmer for about 30-40 minutes until all the vegetables are soft and most of the liquid is absorbed.  At the end we added a bit of cornflour to thicken up the liquid.

This one is a winner. So easy to make in just one pan and you can wander off while it simmers then come back to some delicious food to eat. JD and I loved it. It made a really nice sauce which was spicy but only subtly so. We ate the lot then mopped up the sauce with bread. Fantastic! If you ever try one of the recipes from this blog make it this one, so easy and tastes great.
