Family Recipe: Japanese Beef Curry

Japanese Curry

Nothing beats a warm bowl of curry with fluffy rice, especially a Japanese curry which is perfect for any occasion. Being someone who loves to cook and eat, most of my happy memories are related with food. Food makes me happy in general.

As I grew up eating japanese curry meant a special occasion. We didn’t get to eat this often. Having this for dinner would be reason for us 3 sisters to jump around excitedly and celebrate. This is a simple, lovely, warm curry that is perfect for a family dinner.
