    Place the beef into the freezer for 30-45 mins to stiffen it, remove & slice into thin strips, cook dry in a frying pan until browned, remove & set aside.

    Spray the frying pan with Fry Light and sweat the onions, chilli & garlic, add the button mushrooms & cook for a few minutes, add the Knorr Herb stock pot, mix well until the herbs are infused.

    Add the beef, mix well, and add beef stock. Make up the sauce mix as per the instructions on the packet and when it starts to thicken, add to the beef & mushrooms, mix well add the paprika, Worcester sauce, (At this point you could place ingredients in a slow cooker and leave to slow cook.) seasoning & cook for 20-30 mins. Put the peas in 5 mins before serving.

    Measure the amount of rice required, add 3 times the amount of water, add rice & cook for 20 mins, or until the water has gone, removed when cooked, place in a sieve & place the sieve on the saucepan and cover with a lid, allow to steam for a few minutes, until the beef is ready.

    curry! omg curry!
    you can do this all in one day, but I like to marinade the meat overnight.

    overnight method:

    take curry spices you enjoy, either a pre mixed powder, a paste, one you've ground yourself, whatever. fry off lightly in a little tiny bit of oil. frylight does not work for this bit. if you're a novice, start with a mild curry powder. just a bog standard one, then as you get more confident you can fiddle with flavours.

    pour this fried spice mix over the beef cubes along with some crushed garlic.

    next day:
    chop and fry two onions in some frylight. move them occasionally, but make sure they go as brown as you can get them. this will take a long time to cook them and brown them and not burn them, but it's worth it.
    chuck them in a casserole dish. in the same pan, fry off the spiced beef, do this slowly just until it's "sealed" (changes colour). if you brown it you may go too far and burn the spices.

    put the beef in the casserole dish and pour over a tin of tomatoes to every 500g beef, a little more curry powder, a little more garlic and a beef stock cube or two depending on taste, and a squirt of tomato paste.

    bake in oven on 150 dec C for 3-4 hours.

    taste it after 3 hours. if the beef is tender, it's done. check your seasoning and adjust to taste.

    one day method:
    do the same as above but don't leave the beef in the spices overnight lol.

    this can be done in a slow cooker, but allow 6-8 hours to tenderise the beef, and personally I prefer the baked taste the tomatoes get in the oven.
