Bananas Stuffed with Curried Beef



  1. 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  2. 1 pound ground beef chuck
  3. 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  4. 1 large garlic clove, minced
  5. 2 tablespoons curry powder
  6. 1 tablespoon tomato paste dissolved in 3 tablespoons water
  7. 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  8. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  9. 6 semi-ripe medium unpeeled bananas
  10. 1 small red bell pepper, minced
  1. Preheat the oven to 400°. Heat the oil in a nonreactive skillet. Add the beef and brown over high heat, breaking it up with a wooden spoon, until cooked through. Add the onion, garlic and curry powder and cook, stirring until fragrant, about 4 minutes. Stir in the tomato paste and lemon juice and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Using a small knife, cut each banana lengthwise just through the top skin. Pull the skin apart slightly and stuff each banana with the curried beef. Arrange the bananas in a roasting pan, cover with foil and bake for about 25 minutes, or until the bananas are tender and heated through. Sprinkle with the red pepper and serve.
