1 medium onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves crushed
1 t minced fresh ginger
1 pound ground beef, I am using beef stew meat, sliced thinly
1 T curry powder
1/2 t salt
1 cup chicken broth
1 cup frozen peas
1/2 cup loosely packed fresh cilantro leaves

In large skillet heat oil in med high heat, add onion, and cook until golden about 3 minutes. Add ginger and garlic and cook one more minute. Add beef and cook until no longer pink. Stir in curry powder and salt, cook for 30 seconds. Add broth and peas and cook until slightly thickened.
