Beef Coconut Curry

Beef Coconut Curry

I like the idea of this Beef Coconut Curry. For ages I’ve focused on chicken curry so this will make for a nice change. I’ve also never cooked with coconut milk before so I’m keen to see what happens. 




50g butter


2 brown onions, sliced


2 garlic cloves, crushed


1 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger 


1 1/2 teaspoons turmeric


1/2 to 1 teaspoon chilli powder, to taste



2 teaspoons ground coriander


1 teaspoon cumin


2 teaspoons paprika


1kg piece beef rump steak, fat trimmed, cubed


400ml can coconut milk





1. Melt butter in a large heavy-based saucepan over medium heat.

2. Add onions. Cook for 2 minutes or until tender.

3. Add garlic, ginger and spices. Cook, stirring, for 5 minutes.

4. Add beef. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until browned.

5. Add coconut milk, and salt and pepper. Bring to the boil. Cover.

6. Reduce heat to low.

7. Simmer for 1 hour 15 minutes or until meat is tender.

Recipe Source and adaptations 


This is a recipe that I adapted from which you can find under the name Beef Coconut Curry.

That recipe had a really weird spice ingredient I had never even heard of and would never use again.

It also had 2 teaspoons of ground coriander which I haven’t included because my husband is very allergic to it. 


This was one of the meals I included in Meal Planning Week 4.
