Lately, Mye and I have been obsessed with instant Japanese Curry. Its savory, umami happiness tucked inside every golden packet. The convenience of preparing it (just add hot water) gave us all the flavor we needed to prepare this dish, we didn’t even need to add salt.

We were able to retain the Sloppy Joe-ness of ground beef curry with the help of something we”re sure you already have in your pantry: Tomato Ketchup. Its tangy-sweet flavor brightens up the entire dish. You could also top it with some yogurt for a tart, refreshing finish, and dig in.
