Red Thai Beef Curry

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 45 - 60 min
Serves: 4

Method

Chop the onion and capsicum, and dice the Blade Steak into approximately 1 - 1 1/2 cm cubes

Using a medium saucepan, add some olive oil, chopped onion and red capsicum and fry for about 5 minutes. Add the cubed blade steak and brown the meat.

Next add the spices (paprika, pepper, coriander, minced garlic), peanut butter, red curry paste and the coconut cream [and optional spices if required].

Bring the curry to the boil, and then turn down to a simmer for 40 - 60 minutes (enough time to allow the meat to "melt in the mouth").

While the curry is simmering, boil some water and stir in the rice with a pinch of salt. Cook for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Drain and put aside until later.

Lastly add the frozen peas about 5 -10 minutes prior to the end of the curry's cook time and stir for a few minutes to heat the peas.
