Jack pot...or fruit?
Side note....do not get this confused with a Dorian fruit seen below
So getting back to the task at hand...the jack fruit...what in the hell am I gonna cook with this.
There she is...just starring at me
Here is the recipe.
Joshua's Jack Pot Curry
1 1/2 lbs of top round steak (or meat of your choice), cubed
2 yellow onions, diced
1 cup diced jack fruit
2 potatoes, diced
1 sweet pepper. diced
1 small turnip, diced
3 medium tomatoes, diced
2 T. curry
1 t. turmeric
1 t. white pepper
1 t. Chinese 5 spice
2 stock cubes (beef or chicken)
2 cups hot water
Side note: If you like a spicy curry, add a hot pepper as well. Also, you don't have to use the turnip, I just wanted to cut the sweetness of the dish. If you don't have a turnip, you can use another potato.
Oh and Btw...this is the curry I am using. It's Viet Namese...super good
Okay now everything is chopped and ready to go
In a dutch oven, heat a couple tablespoons of olive oil on high.
Then add steak pieces one at a time.
Now remove the beef and set aside.
Now we need to fry the veggies.
In the same pot, add the veggies, jack fruit, and spices.
Cook these for a few minutes stirring constantly. Then add the water and stock cubes and re-add the meat.
Cover the curry and simmer for 2 to 2 1/2 hours stirring every 20 minutes or so.
Alrighty...here she is peeps!....
Now that Joshua's Jack Pot Curry is all done, I shall plate it up with some yellow rice.
Oh God he's tasting is right now....I'm so nervous. Drum roll please.....
So in conclusion....this dish will totally rock your face off! And the Jack fruit is not so scary after all. So if you decide to make this dish (as you should...cause it will change your life), then you can use the leftover fruit to scare away animals from your yard:)
That's all for now...more to come....
