I’ve got to ask something. This looks and sounds delicious, but there’s a slight problem. My family and I have a condition called “celiac’s disease”. It’s a genetic thing where we get horrendously sick if we eat anything containing gluten. (Even a single crumb, or our food even touching something with gluten makes me sick for a week. I am not exaggerating in any way.) You said that udon noodles are made with wheat. Have you ever tried the recipe with rice noodles or sweet potato noodles? My family doesn’t try new things very often, and if I can convince them that the recipe will work well with the substitutions needed to make it edible for us, then it might be somewhat easier to get everyone willing to try having this for dinner. (big family. 6 people)
The good thing about curry is it will work with practically anything. Rice noodle may be a bit too thin. What you can do is make some extra soup and mix in some of the finished to curry to make a curry soup and serve the rice noodle in that. Top it off with the ingredients and some shredded nori. You can even replace the beef with other meat and the potato/carrot with other veggie. Curry is invincible.
I would read the package of the Roux (as is the proper spelling as far as I can tell) because if I remember correctly most Roux’s are wheat based.
Hmmm Sweet Potato Noodles? That actually sounds like it might be worth trying. The spiciness of the curry would probably go well with a sweet noodle. I might give this a shot myself just to see.
And as for the Episode, damn Justin now I’m hungry… going to the market!
Just a heads up, the noodles may be made from sweet potatoes, but they aren’t sweet themselves. They’re usually really good in stir-fry, though.
I would have sent you a picture, but we ate it too quickly
We gave this a shot Wednesday night, and it was very tasty! With 1.2lb of stew meat it made more than enough for 2 meals for each of the two of us. We probably needed more curry ‘block’ in ours, the pack we found did not have measurements like yours. I look forward to you doing more of these to give a shot to!
I want to try this. I found the curry rue online, since I don’t have an asian market in my town.
Surprisingly, I’ve located the blocks of curry mixture at Gerbes (a local grocery store) as well as Hy-Vee (another regional grocer). They also had the dry Udon noodles. I live in the Midwest and I’ve managed to find it in the specialty aisle with the other oriental foods. I haven’t checked to see if Wal-Mart had it, but it would be hugely accessible if they do.
I haven’t actually made it, yet, because while I was at the store, I couldn’t remember everything that was in the recipe.
