Thalaa Huwa Gosht (pan-fried beef)
Thalaa Huwa Gosht is a dish in which beef cubes are pan-fried in fragrant spices. It is great when paired with khatti daal and white rice. I would say this is definitely a staple comfort food in many Hyderabadi households. It is a very fast and delicious recipe if you are looking for an easy beef dish. I’ve recently updated the recipe to be more Instant Pot friendly, so I hope you guys try it out!
2 lbs boneless beef cut into small cubes
1 tbsp ginger-garlic paste
1 tsp garam masala
1 tbsp cardamom powder
1/2 tsp turmeric
3-4 whole green chilis(adjust according to your heat level)
2 tsp salt
1/3 cup cooking oil
1 tsp red pepper powder
1/2 cup fried onions
1. In an instant pot, add the beef, ginger-garlic paste, garam masala, cardamom powder, turmeric, salt and green chilis. Turn the sauté function on and lightly sauté the beef until it changes color. Add about 1/2 cup of water to allow for the meat to cook. Cover and set the IP to the meat setting for 15 minutes.
2. Once the instant pot is done, release the steam and uncover. The beef should be tender and able to be pinched to break into pieces. There will be juices left in the pot, so cook the meat uncovered again on the sauté mode to allow for the juices to evaporate.
3. Take a deep pan/wok and heat the oil. Add the meat to the oil and pan fry until it starts to brown and slightly crisp on the edges.
4. Add the red pepper powder and fried onions. Saute well until the oil separates and beef is crisp and golden. Garnish with chopped cilantro and green chilis.
