We now stock Jamaican Curry Powder! With a bold, unique, and vibrant flavor, it's sure to please.

Here is a recipe to try:

Jamaican Beef Curry

1/4 cup Jamaican Curry Powder
3 pounds beef stew meat, cut into 2-inch pieces
2 teaspoons salt, divided, plus more to taste
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 medium white onions, chopped
1 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced
10 cloves garlic, chopped
4 cups water
1 (14-ounce) can coconut milk
1 (15-ounce) can crushed tomatoes
1 tablespoon dried thyme
5 yellow waxy potatoes (such as Yukon Gold), cut into large pieces
3 carrots, peeled and cut into 2-inch pieces
2 cups cooked long-grain rice, for serving
1/2 cup chive sticks (1/2”), for garnish

Season beef chunks with 1-1/2 teaspoons salt. Heat oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add beef to the pot in batches, turning until well seared on all sides before transferring to a plate. Keep the oil in the pot. Add onions to pot, along with remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt. Sauté, stirring occasionally, until beginning to brown, about 5 minutes. Add ginger and garlic, and cook, stirring often, for 1 minute. Return beef to pot and sprinkle the Jamaican Curry Powder over, mixing well. Cook for 1 minute, then add water, coconut milk, tomatoes, and thyme. Stir to combine. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cook until meat is tender, about 1-1/2 hours. Add potatoes and carrots, and continue simmering until vegetables are tender and beef is fork-tender. Taste, and adjust seasoning with salt, if necessary. Skim fat from curry before serving. Serve with rice, topped with chopped fresh cilantro. Makes 10 servings.

People ask us all of the time for recipes using our spices and blends. The problem is that I tend not to measure when I cook! Good meals don’t have to be complicated or expensive, they just have to taste good! We use our spice blends in a lot of our dishes to make an easy meal.
I’m going to post a few very simple recipes that even a novice cook can make that taste great,
