Samoan Style Beef Curry Stew (Kale)

We had this yummy curry stew on Fia Fia night at the Sheraton Aggie Grey's where they offered Samoan style buffet dinner. Some say that this dish is Hawaiian. Wherever it originated doesn't matter. I liked it then in Samoa and tried to replicate the dish at home and I have to say it's not too bad. I also used diced Angus beef for mine to cut down the cooking time.

For 2 you'll need:
350 grams diced beef (rump steak is good)
2 tablespoons of flour
3 medium potatoes, each peeled and chopped in quarters
1 big carrot, peeled and chopped
1/2 onion, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
2 teaspoons curry powder
700 mil chicken stock
A splash of brandy
Salt & pepper to taste
Oil for frying

Place flour, salt and pepper in plastic bag, shale to combine, then add diced beef and shake to coat. In a heavy bottom casserole, add a little bit of oil and brown the beef on all sides over medium heat. Remove the beef with slotted spoon and set aside.

In the same casserole, add a little bit more oil, fry onion and garlic until soft. Add curry powder and turn to combine. Add a splash of brandy. Scrape the bottom of the casserole well before adding potatoes and carrot pieces. Stir well and add beef on top of the vegetables, add stock and bring to the boil. Place the lid on the casserole and reduce the heat, simmer for one and a half hour or until the beef is tender and pulled apart easily. Stir from time to time so that the starch does not stick to the bottom of the pan. Add more water and seasoning if needed. Serve hot with white rice or fried rice.
