Curry with cheesesteak meat — Meh :(

Frozen cheesesteak meat

Onions

Bell peppers

Fresh turmeric

Fresh ginger

Fresh garlic

Powdered cumin

Salt

Avocado oil

Canned coconut milk

Tomato paste

Fried up the fresh seasonings and onion. Added bell pepper a little later just before the frozen meat. Added cumin to taste. Added coconut milk after meat finished cooking. Then I added tomato paste to thicken it but I wish I hadn’t and just let it be a thin curry. I cut the ginger and turmeric too large. I should use a food processor or chop the hell out of it. Otherwise I should just use powdered ginger or turmeric unless it’s a special occasion. The extra hassle and risk of over or under seasoning just isn’t worth using the fresh stuff. I also think I’m gonna stop buying frozen meats. I can get fresh chicken or steak when I need it and the extra work is worth it for a fresher tasting meat dish.

I wasn’t impressed with this when I first cooked it but I ate it cold for lunch a couple days later and it didn’t seem so bad. I think I have the right idea. I just need to use fresh meats, play with the flavors a little and add the tomato earlier or not at all.
