Ingredients
  • 2 1/2 pounds cubed beef stew meat
  • 1 pound small red-skinned potatoes, quartered
  • 2 tablespoons Madras curry powder
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped peeled ginger
  • 2 large cloves garlic, grated
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 5 slices naan bread
  • 2 15 -ounce cans diced fire-roasted tomatoes
  • 1 1/4 cups fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 cup sliced pickled jalapeno peppers, plus 1 tablespoon brine from the jar
Directions
  • Toss the beef and potatoes with the curry powder, 1 teaspoon cumin, 1 tablespoon ginger, the garlic, 1 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper in a 6-quart slow cooker. Crumble 1/2 slice of naan into small pieces over the beef and potatoes, then pour in the tomatoes. Cover and cook on low, 7 hours.

  • Uncover and skim off any fat from the top of the mixture. Stir well to combine, then let stand 10 minutes.

Pulse until combined; season with salt and pepper.
