  1. Wanted to try something different from the usual nadan beef curries…. That’s when this recipe came during search and I’m glad that I tried it. Entire family especially my 5 year old kids loved it. Thanks for sharing this recipe…

    • Hi Shinu,

      Thanks a lot for trying this recipe. I actually forgot this recipe since I posted it long ago :)

      Good to know that it was liked by your family.


  2. Hi Maria, when should we add Pepper powder?… It’s in the ingredients list, but not mentioned in the method of preparation..
    I’m actually making Chilly pork (because Pork is very cheap in UK) by combining your Chilly Chicken recipe and Chilly Beef recipe.. I added Pepper Powder in the end.. Came out perfect.. Thanks..

    • Hi Sandeep,

      You can add pepper powder along with the sauces. I liked how you’ve combined the two recipes :)

      Good to know that your chilli pork was a success!


  3. I dont understand the first instruction. Cook beef w/salt and keep aside the stock?? do I boil the the beef w salt and water or saute the beef with salt, please explain..i like to try your recipe..


  4. Maria dear..was planning to make a new beef dish.Going to try chilli beef.. :)

    • Tina kutty, thanks for asking me. I’ve updated the recipe with the same. Pinne you can avoid ajinomotto, though it enhances flavor a bit.

      Hope you’ll like it kettooo..


  5. Hey Maria… Thanks for ur recipe… I wanted to make something for the first time in my life…. this will help me…. will let you know after this adventure…. Beef was my weakness always…. :)

  6. Hey Maria,

    Thanks a lot for this recipe. I tried it out today as a new year special. I made it with fried rice and it goes absolutely great together. I added a little white wine vinegar with the sauces to add a bit of that sour tinge to it.

    All in all a great recipe and so easy to make as well. Less than 45 mins altogether.

    Cheers, SImi

    • Hi Simi

      Thanks simi for dropping in. Happy to hear that you liked the recipe. Adding vinegar sounds nice, I also like a sour tinge. Thanks for the tip :)

      Wish you and your family a wonderful new year!!
