Do you like rice toppings? How do you dress up your rice?
Silogs are always good, Chinese stir-fry rice bowls are fine, adobo is all-time favorite baon to go, but my personal favorite would be beef stew. Rich sauce on rice is simply yummy. And it doesn’t hurt to try different types of stews and braises especially when you don’t feel like eating kaldereta. Here’s a different take with curry and orange juice, adding a somewhat sophisticated flavor to the stew. We use pineapple (and apple) all the time so I figure orange would taste just as good.
Simple Beef Stew with Curry, Tomatoes and Orange Juice
Gravy beef, cut into chunks
2 whole red onions, peeled
2 red potatoes, cut into chunks
2 to 3 tomatoes, diced
1/2 cup fresh orange juice
1 tbsp curry powder
Salt and pepper
Heat oil in a non-stick deep casserole over medium-high heat. Add beef and brown on both sides for about 5 minutes.
Pour 5 to 6 cups of water. Add the whole onions and bring to boil. Simmer for about 30 minutes. Throw in the rest of the ingredients. Simmer until beef is tender. Add potatoes and simmer until cooked. Serve over steamed rice. Simply YUM.
How about you? What do you put, pour or sprinkle over the top of your rice?
Lasang Pinoy, Sundays. Over the Top.
