1/4 cup shortening

4 pounds chuck, cut into 1-inch cubes

1 cup sliced onion

2 tablespoons curry powder

2 teaspoons salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

1/4 cup slivered crystallized ginger

2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint or  1 teaspoon dried mint leaves

1/4 cup unsifted flour

3 10-1/2-ounce cans bouillon, undiluted

Procedure

The day before serving, make the curry.  In hot shortening, in large Dutch oven, saute beef cubes, turning until browned all over - about 20 minutes.  Remove the beef cubes as they brown.  Add 2 tablespoons drippings and saute onion, curry powder, salt, pepper, cloves, ginger and mint about 5 minutes.  Remove from heat and add flour, stirring until well combined.  Gradually stir in bouillon.  Return beef to Dutch oven and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat; simmer, covered, 1-1/2 hours or until beef is tender.  Remove from heat, let cool; refrigerate, covered, overnight.  About 40 minutes before serving, let curry stand at room temperature 15 minutes.  Prepare curry accompaniments and put each into a small serving bowl. Over medium heat, gently reheat curry for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Stir in coconut, lime juice, and half and half.  Heat gently about 5 minutes.  Turn into chafing dish.  Serve with Pineapple rice (See index)surrounded by curry accompaniments.
