1 Preheat oven to 140ºC. In a large flameproof, ovenproof pan, heat 1 teaspoon of the oil over high. Add half of the beef and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes, or until browned. Transfer to a bowl. Repeat with 1 teaspoon of the oil and remaining beef.
2 In the same pan, reduced to medium, heat remaining oil. Sauté onion for 5 minutes, or until softened. Add garlic, chilli, ginger, garam masala and cumin and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes, or until fragrant. Return beef to pan with tomatoes and stock and bring to the boil. Cover, place in preheated oven and bake for 1 hour 45 minutes, or until beef is very tender.
3 Remove pan from oven, stir through spinach and yoghurt. Serve with steamed veges and warmed naan bread.
Make it gluten free: Use gluten-free tortilla instead of naan bread and check ground spices, stock and yoghurt are gluten free.
Suitable to freeze (without spinach).
Garam masala (meaning hot/pungent mix) is a traditional Indian spice blend. It typically contains a mix of fennel seeds, cinnamon, black pepper, cloves and cardamom. Use in curries, dhal or simply as a spice rub for grilled meats.
