Coconut Beef – Crockpot

Found this little ditty on Stephanie Dae’s site. I had some stew meat that i needed to do something with, and beef bourgenese(sp?) was out of the question – not enough time… 365 crock pot to the rescue! This will be a keeper for making a batch of lunches for me! Hubby was luke warm on the left overs. (he wasn’t included in the original tasting!)

This was the main dish for my chick flick night last week.

Coconut Beef – Crockpot

1-2 lbs stew meat
–1 yellow onion, cut in chunks
–1 can coconut milk
–1 juice from one lime
–2 cloves chopped garlic
–2 tsp brown sugar
–1 tsp curry powder
–1/2 tsp ground coriander
–1 tsp cumin
–2T chili paste (or 1-2 tsp red chili flakes)
–1 inch piece of ginger, peeled and grated


I used a 4qt cause i have a pound or under of meat.

Add meat, lime juice, and coconut milk. Follow with the onion and garlic. Add the brown sugar and all the spices. Grate the ginger. Toss meat a bit in the liquid and spices to coat.

Cover and cook on low for 8-10.  (probably was even longer…  we didn’t eat till almost 7, i turned it off for an hour between 5 and 6)

Serve over white rice.
