Beef keema

15 Sep

I made keema once before and thought I’d try a different recipe this time! This one didn’t disappoint either. Think I would decrease the cumin next time. I served with tjs garlic naan.

1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil
1 cup chopped onion (about 3/4 small)
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon minced peeled fresh ginger
1 pound ground beef
1 1/4 teaspoons ground cumin
1 1/4 teaspoons ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 cup chopped tomato
1/2 cup frozen green peas
4 lime wedges


Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion, garlic, and ginger; sauté 4 minutes. Add beef; cook 8 minutes or until browned, stirring to crumble beef. (Drain, if necessary, and return beef mixture to pan.)
Stir in cumin and next 5 ingredients, and cook 1 minute over medium-high heat, stirring often. Stir in tomato and peas. Cook 4 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Serve with lime wedges.
