Green Pepper and Corn Curry Stir-Fry

Green Pepper and Corn Curry Stir-Fry

This goes well with rice or in bentos; both children and adults will love the curry corn flavor.

Ingredients

Green bell peppers
4
Onion
1/2
Corn kernels
80g~to taste
Ground meat
200g
Sake
1 tablespoon
Curry powder, sugar, soy sauce
1 teaspoon of each
Katakuriko slurry
1 teaspoon dissolved in 2 teaspoons water
Salt and pepper
to taste
✿Grated ginger (refer to step 6)
1 tablespoon

Steps

1. Cut the onions and green peppers into 1cm pieces.
2. Fry ground meat in a non-stick pan over medium heat. Add the onions once the meat has browned, and sauté.
3. Once the meat has browned as shown above, add the green peppers and stir-fry.
4. Toss in the corn and mix together as shown above. Add the sake and turn the heat up to high for about 3 seconds to evaporate the alcohol, turn it back down to medium, and mix together thoroughly.
5. Add sugar and curry powder and stir, then add soy sauce and stir again. Finally, add salt and pepper to taste.
6. You can get a slightly deeper flavor if you add the ✿ginger in step 5 (to taste).
7. Turn off the heat momentarily, and mix in the water-dissolved katakuriko. Mix together over low heat until it thickens, and you are done.
8. Serve onto plates and enjoy. It goes well with rice.
9. I cut up celery into equal-sized chunks and fried it up. This makes celery easy to eat even for those of you who don't like it.

Story Behind this Recipe

This is a recipe I often made when my kids were little. Now, I use it for bentos and for lunches on the weekends.
