It’s actually really good if you add some fish sauce and ketchup. My friend swears by adding some ground coffee to the mix after adding the roux. My local grocery series jars of garlic-and-ginger paste that I’m a fan of adding to Japanese curry. I also regularly use chicken broth instead of water.
How do you use Japanese curry cubes?
Boil water in a pan. Add vegetables such as potato or carrot and meat. Break up curry cubes and add 1 cube per person. Stir well and then serve.
How do I make my beef curry tender?
You probably just need to simmer the beef longer in the curry. Or, if you wanted to, you could just braise it separately, then add it to the pan when you’re heating up your sauce/veg. Beef takes a while to get tender. If you’re struggling, look up stroganoff recipes and try to mimic their cook times.
Why is my beef curry tough?
Boiling the meat causes the protein strands to constrict rapidly which squeezes out what little fat it contains. The result is a dry curry. You should allow the meat to simmer slowly so the internal temperature raises slowly. This will tenderize the meat and limit the loss of moisture.

Is Japanese curry fattening?

How do you thicken Japanese curry?
Mix cornstarch or potato starch (katakuriko) in cold water. Once reasonably dissolved, add it to the curry pot. This type of thickener can create a slightly odd texture in a Japanese curry, as the browned roux creates a more velvety texture, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t done it before in a pinch.
