Crock Pot Creamy Beef Curry

READY IN: 8hrs 15mins
Recipe by Olha7397

This is a very simple but delicious recipe for beef braised in Indian spices. Ground almonds are used to thicken the sauce, and yogurt may be added if you prefer a creamier result. Good served over fragrant basmati rice, accompanied by steamed green beans and warm naan, an Indian bread.

Delicious!! This was a winner at our family tasty and so easy to prepare. I popped it in the crockpot before I left for work and came home to the most wonderful aroma. Served over Recipe #108305 with a dolop of yogurt..Mmmm!! Edited to add...leftovers the following day were even more flavourful.
