my son made a lovely beef curry yesterday, he made it with braising steak cooked out for over an hour. Lush!!
nice piece of chuck steak, braise it for an hour or so in some beef stock and then it will be really tender for your curry
Is usually use rump steak & cut it into chunks
if you cook the curry in a slow cooker with the cheapest cuts of beef it'll be soooo tender, i love my slow cooker now.
made a beef stew yesterday with very cheap beef (smart price steak, lol) and it just melted in the mouth, om nom nom
Always use cheap cuts of meat for curry, unless you're limited by time.

Shin of beef, braising steak etc

I agree, slow cookers are great for tenderising meats, i cooked a beef joint in mine for the first time last week and it was lovely, not dried out like it can be when done in oven !

dont use expensive cuts like rump as its just a waste of money assuming you cook the curry properly

Ask your local butcher for some his best 'beef curtains', they are the tastiest bits
What do the takeaways and restaurants generally use in their beef curries?
