  • Coconut Curry w/ Ground Beef

    Coconut Curry w/ Ground Beef

    1 can coconut milk

    1 Tbs red curry paste (+/- depending on how spicy you like it)

    1 lb ground beef



    Veggies: I used cauliflower, carrot, broccoli, peas, & kohlrabi greens - use whatever you have

    Thai or Vietnamese fish sauce (you could use tamari if you don't have fish sauce, but it gives the curry a more authentic flavor)

    Other additions: lime juice, cilantro

    Put 1/2 can of coconut milk in a large pot, add curry paste and break up. Add onion, cauliflower, carrot, and ginger. Add rest of coconut milk and water or broth if you want it more liquidy. Simmer. Lightly brown beef in a skillet (can be rare). Steam broccoli & kohlrabi greens separately. When cauliflower & carrots are tender, add all other veggies and beef. I didn't have lime juice or cilantro, but those would have made it even better!

    EDIT: After making this many times, I have gotten lazier and skipped some steps with no adverse effects. I now add the ground beef raw, as well as all the veggies.

          I just made something along these lines, and it is amazing. Further, it's about the ideal primal meal, isn't it? Healthy veggies, good fatty meat, loads of coconut, and a range of spices. Thanks for the inspiration (found it in the ground beef recipe thread)!

              I know this post is old, but I found it when I did a Google search for "ground beef curry recipe" and I'm totally going to make this when I get home today.

                I just tried chicken coconut curry from my local Thai place for the first time yesterday -- skipped the rice, confirmed the dish was gluten-free -- and it was fabulous. I'm really excited about trying the beef coconut curry recipe above!
