Vindaloo Beef Curry (Crockpot Conversion)

My friend (who's parents are from India) makes this and it's really good. I decided to try to convert it into a crockpot recipe. It's not too spicy for kids.
1 pound boneless beef round (I have used sirloin, also)-cut into 1" cubes
2 T butter
1 cup onion, chopped
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 T white vinegar
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp dry mustard
1/2 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes (or 1/4 tsp cayenne)
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup water
Put all in crock pot and cook on low for 8 hours. Just before dishing it up stir in 2 T lemon juice. Serve over rice-brown basmati is great with it-or jasmin rice. (One of these days I am going to master making rice in my other crockpot without it being glumpy and mushy. I have only ever tried to cook it in the same pot with chicken and it was awful. If anyone has tips on this-I'd love to learn). Also here's a side traditionally served with this.

Radish Raita
Shred 1 cup radishes on box grater. Add salt to taste. Mix with 2 cups plain yogurt and season with 1 tsp cumin.

Going to try it tonite. Most recipes call for chopped tomatos. I may add them all the same. Thanks.
