Quick Beef Curry

Winter has set in, or I’m just really feeling the cold this year.  It’s officially casserole season in our house and curries are always a favourite.  This Beef Curry takes only 30 minutes to cook, full of flavour and deliciously tender vegetables.

I’ve made this curry several times, in the recipe I list to use Korma curry paste, however, you can use whichever curry paste tickles your fancy or suits your taste buds.  I recently used yellow curry paste as the supermarket didn’t have korma available, it was just as good, perhaps better?

Hubby and the kids came home as I was cooking this curry and they said they could smell it from the letter box, and smelt even better when they got inside.

This recipe looks great, thank you for sharing. Can I just check on which cut of beef you used please? I am seeing a lot of programming data.

Can this be cooked in the slow cooker? Would I have to do anything different? I LOVE curry’s but my husband doesn’t so I’ve never made them but I’d like my boys to try for themselves. Is this pretty mild? Sorry for so many questions. : ) Thanks!
