Slow Cooker Thai Green Beef Curry
This Slow Cooker Thai Green Beef Curry is deliciously authentic with all the typical thai mouth popping flavours you’d expect from a store bought thai beef green curry. With melt in your mouth tender beef, pumpkin, beans and a rich thick aromatic sauce this is the ultimate clean eating comfort food curry you’ll come back to time and again.
Servings 4 serves
- 1 kg / 2 pounds lean gravy beef cut into 2cm chunks fat trimmed 1 medium Brown onion, finely diced
- 2 tablespoons Thai Green Curry Paste see note 1
- 1 tablespoon Crushed garlic
- 1 tablespoon Minced Ginger
- 1 tablespoon Lemongrass paste or fresh chopped lemongrass
- 1 Red chilli finely diced
- 1 tablespoon Fish sauce
- 1 tablespoon Raw honey
- ¾ cup Coconut milk
- ¾ cup Beef stock/broth
- 4 fresh Kaffir Lime Leaves see note 6
- ¾ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup diced Pumpkin 1cm x1cm
- 20 long Green beans chopped
- 2 cups baby spinach
In a large non stick pan set to high, brown the meat for 2 to 3 minutes. (I recommend doing it in two batches as it makes it a bit easier - the pan isn't over-crowed and the meat browns quicker. Once browned, transfer the meat into the sloe cooker pot.
To the same pan on the stove, add the onion, garlic, ginger and chilli and lemongrass. Stir through for 2 to 3 minutes until fragrant. Add to the slow cooker, stirring into the meat.
Add the curry paste, fish sauce, honey, lime leaves, beef stock/broth, and the coconut milk. Stir to combine.
Add the beans and pumpkin and stir to combine.
Set slow cooker to cook on Low for 8 hours, or cook on high for 4 hours.
Once its finished cooking stir in the baby spinach and serve.
Serve steamed jasmine rice.
- Curry Paste: 2 tablespoons Thai Green Curry Paste will result in a mild curry. For a medium curry, increase to 3tablespoons of curry paste. I use the Volcom brand.
- Meat: Suitable cuts of meat include skirt steak, gravy beef, or shin. Cheap cuts of meat are great for slow cooking, just make sure to trim off any excess fat before browning the meat.
- Kaffir Lime leaves are available from supermarkets in the fresh fruit and veg section. There are also bottled kaffir lime leaves in the Asian section of Woolworths and Coles that you could try if you can’t find the fresh ones.
- Lemongrass paste: I find this in the fresh food section of Coles and Woolworths, generally where the herbs are.
- Freezing: This recipe is suitable to freeze for upto 8 weeks.
- Nutritional information does not include rice.
