Korean Curry - Fast and Simple Weekday Dinner

Korean curry is a stew-like curry sauce made from instant curry roux blocks (or powder) and served over rice. It's fast and perfect for after-work dinner. 
Course: Easy
Servings: 4 people


  • Curry Roux Block - 4-6 blocks or use Curry Powder
  • Water - 3 cups
  • Onion - 2
  • Potato - 2 Medium-sized, size of palm
  • Carrot - ⅔ of a whole
  • Broccoli - ⅓ of a whole
  • Button mushrooms - 4 button
  • Beef - 150 grams
  • Rice - 1 cup


Prep Ingredients

  • Cube onion, potatoes and carrots into rough bite-sized pieces. No need to be exact.
  • Then cut broccoli florets into smaller pieces. Quarter button mushrooms.
  • Cut beef into bite-size pieces as well.

Make Curry

  • Take out large frying pan or pot and place on medium high heat. When it is hot, put oil into the frying pan. Put onions in and stir until they begin to turn slightly translucent.
  • Then add in beef. When beef lose most of their red color, place in all of the vegetables except for the broccoli. Stir-around all of the vegetables until they begin to sweat.
  • Then put in water. Bring up to a boil. Once water is boiling, use a ladel to take out any scum that floats on the surface.
  • Let all vegetables cook for 10 minutes on medium heat. After 10 minutes, add broccoli into the stew.
  • Then mix in the curry roux blocks/powder into the soup (add half the curry blocks/powder at once and then add more, tasting as you go).
  • If you see that your stew has reduced too much, simply add more water. Or if you like the taste stronger, add more blocks (or powder). Once you like the taste, turn the heat off. Serve with rice.


  • Don't add all of the curry powder/roux at one time. Put half the amount in, and taste as you add more. If the stew reduces too quickly, simply add more water. Likewise, if it tastes watery, add more powder/roux. Can't go wrong with it!
