Curry Round Two and Honey Sriracha Chicken

I made the Curry Beef Bowl from The Woks of Life a few weeks ago and it didn’t turn out very well. The curry flavor was bland, the beef was overcooked, and the potatoes were not cooked. This was all my fault though as I didn’t follow the instructions very well and the stove I haven’t isn’t very hot. The second time I made it (tonight) it was a a bit better. The beef wasn’t as chewy and I think that’s because I used 15% lean beef instead of 10% lean. The potatoes were way better the second time around because I cooked them for a longer period of time. The curry flavor still isn’t very…well…curry. It’s there but it’s more subtle and I like curry that has a bolder flavor. I’m not sure what I can do as I doubled the amount of curry powder this time around. I may have to try a different curry powder mix. The site recommends madras curry powder so maybe I’ll try that once I use up all my current stock of powder.

I also made Honey Sriracha Chicken from Creme de la Crumb and it was pretty damn good. I need to mince the garlic better and add more sriracha but over all it was pretty tasty. I was concerned as I generally do not like chicken breast but the sauce made up for the dryness of the chicken breast. I didn’t taste much of the honey either now that I think about it…hmm…maybe I should add more honey as well.

Side note: The Rubbermaid Brilliance line of food storage is pretty good but will stain if it stores curry.
