This was really tasty and the perfect comfort food. I cooked it with the lid on and it thickened up nicely and served it over rice.

Used the pressure cooker - 20 min for the beef/onions and broth (the beef was still partially frozen), release pressure, add the rest of the stuff, return to pressure and cook for 5 more minutes...

I made this for my husband who is allergic to soy and gluten intolerant. I omitted the flour, used beef short ribs instead of stew meat, and added some carrots. The results were amazingly tasty....

Great recipe. I doubled up the molasses and tripled the Curry and I still couldn't taste the curry. Nonetheless my family loved it!!

Thank you for this dairy free, soya free recipe. 'm wheat and wheat product intolerant, plus lactose intolerant. This curry is great. (I used cornstarch for thickener...)

Made this following the recipe and it was wonderful.

We added garlic and Serrano peppers. Dish was good enough to cook again. thanks

great recipe i've been makin it the past 2 years,even add a lil bok choy during the last 20 minutes

Thanks for the recipe. I used 3 lbs potatoes, which was a little too much, but saying "3 potatoes" in the recipe doesn't tell me much. It would be a lot easier if you would say how many pounds...
