Cook Like a Dad Cooking Steps: Breakdown the Meat
In this recipe, I am going to use Sirloin Steak. The Sirloin is a great cut of beef because it is affordable and easily accessible at a grocery store. I also like Sirloin because it is a lean cut of beef, packed with protein and flavor. The key to cooking Sirloin is the ability to be patient while cooking it. I get a lot of emails from my fellow, “Dad Cooking” followers who just give up too soon on cooking the Sirloin. In my recipe video, I invest about 17- 20 minutes cooking my sirloin at medium-high heat. So, don’t give up on your meat…
Here’s my cooking tip on how to bring out the best flavor in Sirloin:
– Prep the meat by trimming all fat away and cut thin slices as in my video
– Chop ½ of onion and mix into a bowl with meat, lightly oiled
– Season the bowl of onions and beef with Garlic Salt and course Ground Pepper
– Once the oil, meat, and onions begin to cook brown; I like to slowly add water into the pan to keep the meat from burning and drying out, (see video)
– As the water evaporates, continue to add a little and keep the meat covered with lid
Cooking Step: Ready to add the Veggies
You know when your Sirloin is ready for the next step in this recipe when you can cut the meat with a butter knife. At this point, it’s time to add the vegetables into the pan of beef and lower the heat to Med- Low and cover with lid. Make sure there is still a little liquid in the pan when placing the vegetables into the pan. Continue to stir the contents together for another 1-12 minutes or when your potatoes and carrots have softened.
Cooking Step: The Silk Factor
While the veggies are softening in the fry pan, it’s now time to take 2-Cups of Silk, Coconut Milk into a bowl, and add 4-Tablespoons of your curry spice. Gently stir the powder spice into the Coconut Milk. I personally like a thick, gravy-like texture in my recipe, and that’s why I ADD a tablespoon of Corn Starch into my bowl. Give yourself plenty of time to make sure that all contents are mixed together well before pouring this mixture into the frying pan of beef and vegetables. Add mixture into the pan and stir the entire contents together slowly. Lower heat and cover with lid.

Think, “2 to 1” Ratio:
2 Cups of Silk Coconut Milk, 1 Cup of Rice

When Milk cooks into the rice, cover with lid, continue to keep heat low for another 3-5 minutes, and then turn off heat.
