1/4 lb Honey
5 cloves Garlic (roughly chopped)
6 Arbol Chili Peppers (crushed)
2 tbsp Thyme

2 tbsp Cinnamon
3 tbsp Seasoning Salt
1/4 cup Soy Sauce

(Additional ingredients listed below in recipe).

Step 1

Making the Bombay: Ingredients: 2 lbs Eye of Round 1/2 lb Shrimp 3 tbsp Curry Powder 4 3 stalks Celery 5 cloves Garlic juice from Lime juice from Lemon 1/4 cup Ginger 1 large Tomato 1/2 Red Onion (largely diced) 1 Mango (diced) 1 Papaya (diced) 2 Kiwi (diced) 1/4 Pineapple (diced) 1/2 can Coconut Milk 1/2 bag Coconut Flakes 10-15 Almonds Scallions Cayenne Pepper Cilantro Mint


Step 2

Ingredients cont..


Step 3

Why the eye round roast? It's more affordable, you get 5 lbs of meat for around $10. If you buy precut steaks, you'll be paying $3 to $4 a pound. In most cases you won't find a 2lb eye of round roast. So get the smallest one, and then cut it in half. Trim the fat off the loin.


Step 4

Roughly slice it widthwise 3 or 4 times, to get thinner steaks.


Step 5

Place overnight in the marinade.


Step 6

Slice the steaks into into strips and after getting a wok extremely hot, stir fry them. Add a small bit of marinade and let it caramelize to give the beef some color.


Step 7

Put the beef on the side, and do the same for the shrimp. Next, stir fry the garlic and ginger until they start to darken and add in the fruit and vegetables. Let them cook for about 3 minutes, then add a little bit more of the marinade.


Step 8

Once it starts to boil, make a small cornstarch slurry and add until the sauce becomes thick. Add the stir fried meats and vegetables and mix well.


Step 9

Let a pan get hot, and toss the almonds, scallions, and coconut in. Once it starts to brown, continue sauteing off the heat so the coconut doesn't burn.


Step 10

Serve over rice, or rice noodles and top with the coconut mixture.

Our family tried this recipe tonight - It was enjoyed by all of us. 

The preparation time is the hardest part, but it was well worth it in the end.

The instructions for this dish is a little hard to follow - I went ahead and did the 2nd round of the lemon/lime juice, garlic and ginger that the Bombay called for (outside of the marinade) since it seemed to make sense that it would even out the sweetness of all the required fruit.  That was the right way to go - everything was just fine.

The instructions doesn’t say when to put the coconut milk in, so I added it and the lemon/lime juice right after I put the fruit/vegetable mix in the pan (followed by the Curry and Cayenne).

Thanks for sharing this recipe - it will last us a pretty good while!
