Fragrant Coconut Beef Curry

I was eavesdropping earlier in Aldi, you know the way you do, sometimes you can’t help overhear cos people are talking right beside you, anyways one says to the other “Oh you must make that coconut beef recipe” and in my head I went “Bing! That’s sounds (a.) freakin’ delicious and (b.) exactly what I want to eat tonight” A bit of quick thinking and a little google researching ensued around the aisles of Aldi and this is what was conceived from the aforementioned earwigging. A beautiful light fragrant coconut beef curry, delicious! Here’s how I made it:

800g Lean Steak Pieces

400ml Can Light Coconut Milk

1 Small Onion diced

2 Cloves Garlic Crushed

2cm piece of Fresh Ginger grated

2 Bay Leaves

Mix together in a bowl the following:

1 Tsp Tumeric

½ Tsp Chilli Powder

½ Tsp Ground Fenugreek

1 ½ Tsp Ground Coriander

1 Tsp Cumin

2 Tsps Paprika

2 Tbsps Medium Curry Powder

Pinch of salt

To Serve:

Basmati Rice

Fresh Chilli

Fresh Coriander

Fresh Lime

Serves 4 at 10SP for the Curry (Add points for the rice or whatever you serve it alongside)

Using some spray oil, fry the beef in batches until brown, remove and set aside. Fry the onion over a low heat until softened this will take about 5 minutes. Pop the grated ginger and crushed garlic in and fry for 30 seconds or so. Pour in your spice mix that you have in the bowl and continue to cook the dry spice mix with the onion over a medium heat while stirring, it will stick very slightly just keep moving it about. Pour in the Coconut Milk and add the bay leaves and re add the beef to the pan. Simmer over a medium heat for 40 minutes or so until the beef is tender. Sere with rice and top with fresh coriander, chillies and lime. How easy was that!
