My dh & I love Thai curries. This one is very special. Hope that you will enjoy this delicious dish as much as we do. Another flavorful dish that is quick and very easy to make.

We loved this! We'd have given it 10 stars if we could! The flavours were amazing. I only used 1 TB of fish sauce (personal preference), and I used a bit extra chilli (again, personal preference). I also sliced up a zucchini and put it in with the beef. We loved this sauce so much, and are going to try this again, with some seafood, and maybe again with some chicken! This is my new favourite red curry sauce recipe!! Thanks for sharing! :) [Made for Aus/NZ Recipe swap]
