Meat Chops

Come Sunday and it is day to eat meat. Most of the meat recipes prepared at home are spicy with garam masala. This dry meat recipe is prepared sans the usual spices and can be snacked or served with rice. Check out the recipe:

the recipe

Boneless Meat - 500 gms
Pepper powder - 1/2 tsp
Chilly powder - 1 tsp
turmeric - 3/4 tsp
Vinegar - 1 tbsp
Ginger, finely chopped - 4 cm piece
Garlic finely chopped - 10 cloves
Shallots (small onion, finely chopped ) - 10 (optional)
Salt - 3/4 tsp

for tempering

dry red chillies (optional) - 2
lime - 1
oil - 2 tbsp

the method

Cut beef into 4 x 4 cm pieces and marinate with vinegar, garlic, ginger, turmeric, chilly powder, pepper powder, shallots and salt for 2 hours. Pressure cook the marinade until done. Reduce the water in the cooked meat to get the dry pieces only.
In a heavy bottom flat pan (preferably) add oil. Cut the whole chillies into 3 or 4 pieces (as seen in picture) and add to the oil. Add the cooked meat. Stir well so that all the pieces are coated with oil. Squeeze the juice from the lime and pour it over the meat to coat all the pieces. Stir until the meat pieces are browned and the meat has fully absorbed the lime juice.

Afterthoughts: If you feel the meat may burn add more oil (1 or 2 tbsp)
