    From the Test Kitchen

    Chefs! We’re bringing you a series of recipes designed with ease of cooking and cleanup in mind, but without sacrificing the incredible flavors you’ve come to expect from a classic Blue Apron meal. Served over a bed of fragrant, curry-spiced rice, our beef and carrots also get dynamic flavor from the spicy, sweet, and savory tomato achaar they cook with in the pan. To bring it all together, we’re finishing the dish with a drizzle of bright, creamy cilantro sauce.

    tips & techniques
    Cook the rice
    1 Cook the rice

    Carefully rinse the rice (sifting through for any small stones or impurities). Drain thoroughly. In a medium pot, combine the rice, half the curry powder (you will have extra), a big pinch of salt, and 2 cups of water. Stir to combine. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook, without stirring, 13 to 15 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Turn off the heat and fluff with a fork.

    2 Prepare the carrots

    Meanwhile, wash, dry, and peel the carrots; halve lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise.

    3 Cook the Beyond Beef™ & carrots

    In a large pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the Beyond Beef™ and sliced carrots; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally and breaking apart with a spoon, 6 to 7 minutes, or until the beef is lightly browned and the carrots are slightly softened. Carefully drain off and discard any excess oil. Add as much of the tomato achaar as you'd like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until thoroughly combined and the Beyond Beef™ is cooked through. Turn off the heat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.
