Beef and Tendon Curry

In search for making the best curry at home landed me in creating this Ang Sarap Original recipe, the best curry I made to date and its more than phenomenal! Just imagine Fork tender fatty beef brisket and gelatinous melt in your mouth beef tendons on a creamy spicy coconut curry made with a fusion of Penang curry spices and traditional curry powder, this is one hell of a curry. Meaty, creamy, spicy, a bit hot, just a spoonful of this with basmati rice can make you crazy. This is a result of different curry permutation I had done so far, a bit of the good stuff from everything. What do you think? Care to try this recipe and let me know the result?
