Best Beef Dishes
» Japan: Karei Raisue
Japan is known for its amazing sushi dishes or, when it comes to beef, most people think of their famous Kobe beef. But that’s not what we’re here to talk about — we’re rather here to talk about Japanese curry, otherwise known as “Karei Raisu”.
For starters, Japanese curry is unlike an Indian curry since it’s much more reminiscent of a stew with curry flavorings. A Japanese beef curry also uses tender pieces of beef which are cooked in a rich sauce and plenty of rice to mop up all of the tastes. This dish is truly delicious and will have you savoring every last bite.
But don’t fret: you don’t need to travel all the way to Japan to sample it, as you can find it in a halal restaurant or order it through sites like Deliveroo to bring the taste of Japan to your own home.
» Thailand: Pad Gra Pow
Thai food makes for excellent comfort food. Somehow, each dish is tastier than the last and there’s something to suit everyone’s preferences.
If you’re looking for a great eat, Pad Gra Pow is a yummy basil beef dish that’s bursting with rich and vibrant ingredients. You’ll be able to find it anywhere in Thailand as it’s super popular, but it’s also a pretty simple dish to make yourself and a truly special way to enjoy beef that is tender and full of flavor. The holy basil used in this dish can even be found in your local Asian supermarket and it adds a whole new level to your beef.
For a truly authentic taste, it’s best served alongside jasmine rice, chopped peppers and dark oyster sauce.
» Mexico: Carne Guisada
Mexico may be known for its tacos, enchiladas and burritos but there are so many more delicious dishes on offer. For instance, the Carne Guisada is a tender beef stew with a spicy kick. It’s certainly a heavenly dish which is comforting and filling and will have all of your foodie friends licking their lips in delight.
This stew uses beef marinated with chili flakes and served with jalapenos for a spicy and satisfying flare. Fresh salsa and chipotle chilies plus a generous helping of rice make this dish even fierier for the spice lovers out there – and it’s a dish you certainly won’t forget in a hurry.
