Thai Green Beef Curry Recipe

Thai Green Beef Curry Recipes

Ingredients :

2 tbsp groundnut oil

2.5cm (1 inch) piece of fresh root ginger, peeled and finely chopped

2 shallots, chopped

4 tbsp green curry paste

500g (1 lb) fillet of beef, cubed

300ml (1/2 pint) coconut milk

4 tbsp fish sauce

1 tsp palm sugar or soft brown sugar

3 kaffir lime leaves, finely chopped, or 1/4 tsp grated lime rind

2 tsp tamarind liquid

1 green chili, deseeded and finely sliced

salt and pepper


To garnish -

yellow pepper strips

fried chopped garlic

red chili strip, curled (optional)

Method :

Heat the oil in a wok. Add the ginger and shallots and stir-fry over a low heat for about 3 minutes or until softened. Add the green curry paste and fry for 2 minutes.

Add the beef to the wok, stir until evenly coated in the spice mixture and fry for 3 minutes to seal the meat. Stir in the coconut milk and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and cook the curry over a low heat, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes or until the beef is cooked through and the sauce has thickened.

Stir in the fish sauce, sugar, lime leaves, tamarind liquid and chili. Cook the curry for a further 5 minutes, then season to taste.

Serve the curry hot, garnished with yellow pepper strips and fried garlic and topped with a red chili curl, if liked.

Serves 4

This another classic Thai dish made with green curry paste and coconut milk. Again, the beef can be substituted for chicken as an alternative.
