My husband makes the best beef karahi and I found out that he makes it from this recipe. This recipe for beef karahi is very special for both of us as he makes it very tasty. The gravy is perfect and other masala are also written in a perfect quantity. The recipe should be followed to the point.

Beef karahi is something which is loveable on the day of Eid ul Azha. Many families here in Pakistan make beef karahi on the first day of Eid. It is made with boneless beef cuts. I have tried this recipe a lot of times and it has always turned great.
