Coconut Beef Curry


Not a great picture, but are there really any good pictures of Indian curry dishes?  Despite the picture, this is an excellent Indian inspired crock pot beef curry.  I don’t say this often, especially with regards to a crock pot meal, but this dish is company worthy…especially if the company loves a deliciously spicy (or not if you choose not to add the spice) curry.


  • 1 can of light coconut milk
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 inch pieces of ginger, grated
  • 2 tsp. brown sugar
  • 2 tsp. curry powder
  • 2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1 tsp. ground coriander
  • 1 tsp. crushed red pepper (or less if desired)
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 onion, roughly chopped
  • 2 potatoes, 1 inch cubes
  • 1 lb. very lean stew meat
  • 1 c. peas
  • Hot rice, peanuts, and cilantro


  1. Combine coconut milk through salt in the crock pot; then add onion, potatoes, and stew meat and toss to coat.
  2. Cook on Low for 4 1/2 hours or until meat is tender.
  3. Add cooked peas.
  4. Serve over rice and garnish with peanuts and cilantro.
