How to make beef curry
I prefer using my slow cooker for dishes like this to let the flavors slow cooker and meld all day.
You’ll want to make sure your beef is in bite sized pieces so that it will cook evenly and let the flavors soak into every bite.
Whisk together the coconut milk with the seasoning and pour it over the meat along with the onion and garlic.
Let cook all day on low for best results. When it’s done cooking, the meat will be fall apart tender and you can break it into smaller pieces if desired.
How to serve beef curry…
Beef curry is delicious served simply over steamed white or brown rice. I also love chickpea rice as a grain free option.
I love topping it off with fresh chopped cilantro for extra flavor.
This is also a great meal prep recipe. Portion out the curry over rice in individual containers and reheat to serve.
