Coconut Beef Curry

Coconut milk can add a lot of flavour and creaminess to curry.  This easy slow cooker recipe is a great way to use that slightly tougher cut of beef.  After simmering for hours, you won't believe how tender it will become.

Ingredients :

-  2 lbs. of stewing beef
-  the juice of 1 lime
-  14 oz can of coconut milk (not the carton)
-  1 medium onion cut into chunks
-  1 tablespoon of chopped garlic
-  1 tablespoon of coconut sugar (or you can use maple syrup or honey)
-  1 tablespoon of curry powder (choose milk or hot depending on taste)
-  1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
-  1 teaspoon ground cumin
-  1 tablespoon hot pepper flakes (optional)
-  1 inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled and grated

Check Amazon for any hard-to-find ingredients.

Directions :
  • Put all the ingredients into a large bowl and mix together.
  • Add the beef and toss in the liquid, making sure it is all well coated.
  • Transfer the beef and the rest of the ingredients to your slow cooker.
  • Cover and cook on low for 8 hours or on high for 4 hours

This is a very basic recipe and it's easy to turn it into a complete meal by adding vegetables.  Sliced cucumber with sour cream is a cool and refreshing accompaniment.

You can also add carrots, broccoli, peas and cauliflower to the stew itself while it cooks.  Just make sure to add the vegetables to the pot before the beef as vegetables cook more slowly in the slow cooker.

Another traditional accompaniment would be Cauliflower rice or Miracle rice.
