Kima Curry - Nov 14, 2012
This is another one of our treasured recipes from JJ, my sister-in-law, an amazing cook, and someone that always inspires me. According to JJ, Kima Curry is a Kenyan ground beef curry. According to me it is an amazingly flavorful dish to make with a pound of ground beef, a can of tomatoes, and some rice. My Mom made countless meals with those same three mid-western kitchen staples when I was growing up. I think they could be considered the busy mom's go-to ingredients for a quick weeknight dinner, able to be combined in a myriad of ways. Well, this rendition is now firmly on my list. I love that the addition of a few herbs and spices makes these familiar ingredients come together in a new and interesting way. The recipe is from the cookbook, "Extending the Table," and can be found online here. Nick and I both really enjoyed it, and this dinner also meets my "My Dad would eat this" criteria, meaning that I could make this for dinner on a night that he joins us and he (a notoriously picky eater) wouldn't go hungry.
