Braised Beef



Braised Beef

  1. In a large pot over high heat, brown the meat in the oil. Season with salt and pepper. Add the onion and cook for 3 minutes while stirring. Add the coconut milk, curry paste, lime, fish sauce, sugar and cinnamon. Bring to a boil. Cover and simmer over low heat for 2 hours or until the meat is fork tender. Remove the lime from the pot and compost. Freeze at this point, if desired.


  1. Place a steaming basket in the bottom of another large pot. Add enough water to just reach the bottom of the steamer. Cover and bring to a boil. Place the eggplants and green beans in the steamer. Cover and cook for 5 minutes or until tender.
  2. Add the vegetables to the pot of braised beef and simmer for 2 minutes while stirring.
  3. Serve the meat with the vegetables. Garnish with the bell pepper and Thai basil, if desired. Delicious served with rice.


If you don’t have light coconut milk on hand, use 1 can of regular coconut milk and add the same quantity of water.
