Spicy Turkey and Green Bean Stew / Pikantno varivo sa puretinom i mahunama

This easy little stew is well seasoned and brings together the best from two quite different styles of cooking. Initially it starts off as a stir-fry, but then you finish everything with a nice simmer, so all the aromas have time to develop and mingle. I served it over cooked rice, but you can totally have it with a nice hunk of crusty bread as well.

METHOD:

Cut the meat into small cubes, then toss together with salt, black pepper, soy sauce and Sriracha. Allow to sit for about half an hour. While the meat is resting, wash, peel and chop up all the veggies.

Place a wok or deep skillet on medium-high heat and add in coconut oil and meat. Cook for about 5 minutes, until slightly crispy before adding in onion and carrots. Allow the veggies to slightly caramelize and then add in minced ginger and garlic. Give everything a good stir and allow the spices to become fragrant just for a minute before you add in green beans, salt, black pepper, red pepper flakes, paprika, turmeric, curry powder, brown sugar, tomato paste and veggie broth. Bring to a gentle simmer, reduce heat and simmer with a lid cracked open for about 20 minutes.

After 20 minutes dissolve corn starch in water and stir into the stew to thicken. Taste and adjust seasoning, then serve with a carb of your choice.

Ovo jednostavno pikantno varivo (ili bolje reći, gulaš) je dobro začinjeno i na neki način objedinjuje u sebi najbolje stvari iz dva totalno različita stila kuhanja. Prvo krenete sa stir-fry prženjem kao za jela iz woka, a na kraju sve završite sa dobrim krčkanjem, tako da se arome sjedine i prožmu. Ja sam ovo jelo poslužila sa kuhanom rižom, ali totalno bi super išlo i uz komad nekog lijepog hrskavog kruha.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 porcije / 7,01 kn po porciji / 28,02 kn za sve)

Za meso:

200 g fileta od purećih prsa (10,00 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

Dobar prstohvat svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,15 kn)

1 žlica soja sosa (0,50 kn)

2 žlice Srirache (1,00 kn)

Za varivo:

2 žlice kokosovog ulja (1,00 kn)

1 veliki luk (0,75 kn)

2 mrkve (1,50 kn)

Komadić đumbira veličine palca (1,00 kn)

4 češnja češnjaka (1,00 kn)

300 g smrznutih mahuna (6,00 kn)

½ žličice soli (0,01 kn)

1 žličica svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,50 kn)

½ žličice sušenog čilija u pahuljicama (0,25 kn)

1 žličica dimljene paprike (0,50 kn)

1 žličica kurkume u prahu (0,50 kn)

1 žlica curry praha (1,00 kn)

1 žlica smeđeg šećera (0,10 kn)

2 žlice koncentrata rajčice (1,00 kn)

2 šalice povrtnog temeljca (1,00 kn)

1 žlica kukuruznog škroba (0,25 kn)

½ šalice tople vode (–)

PRIPREMA:

Meso narežite na male kockice, pa pomiješajte sa solju, paprom, soja sosom i Srirachom. Pustite da odstoji oko pola sata. Dok meso odmara, operite, ogulite i nasjeckajte svo povrće.

Stavite wok ili dublju tavu na srednje jaku vatru, pa dodajte meso. Kuhajte oko pet minuta da se malo zahrska prije nego dodate luk i mrkve. Pustite da se povrće blago karamelizira pa dodajte još sjeckani đumbir i češnjak. Dobro sve promiješajte, pa kada začini zamiriše ubacite mahune, sol, papar, čili, papriku, kurkumu, curry, smeđi šećer, koncentrat rajčice i temeljac. Ostavite da zavrije, smanjite vatru, te krčkajte sa odškrinutim poklopcem 20-tak minuta.

Nakon 20 minuta kukuruzni škrob rastopite u vodi te umiješajte u varivo da se ono zgusne. Kušajte i prilagodite začine, pa poslužite sa ugljikohidratom po vašem izboru.
