This is very simple recipe. I replaced the beef with 2 bunches of asparagus and it worked quite well actually. Use it as a sauce for other stir-fries as well.
- 400 ml coconut milk
- 1 tablespoon red curry paste
- 2 tablespoons crunchy peanut butter
- 1 tablespoon fish sauce
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 600 g rump steak (sliced into thin strips)
- 1 cup Thai basil
- Heat 1/4 cup of the thick cream from the top of the coconut milk over high heat for 5 minutes, stirring often, until the cream bubbles. To separate, pour the milk into a jar and allow to sit for 2-3 hours or until you can see two distinct layers.
- Add curry paste and cook for 2-3 minutes stirring constantly until well combined.
- Add peanut butter, fish sauce and brown sugar and cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly. Add remaining coconut milk.
- When the mixture boils, add rump steak, cover and cook over medium heat for 5 minutes, stirring a few times.
- Stir through basil leaves.
- Serve with steamed jasmine rice and top with extra basil leaves and shredded red chilie and lime leaf, if desired.
Not made this yet - but I was taught the REAL Panang from Kamolmal in L.A. - what is almost always the case in Thai Restaurants in Australia is this - Order a Red curry...now order a Panang curry - taste teste?....no difference...they almost ALL do not use peanuts/and do use the same Red curry paste....PEANUTS are Panang
I can't believe how easy and delicious this recipe is. Great with venison tenderloin and/or backstrap.
Yum YUM. This tasted sooooo authentic! Must use real Thai Basil leaves though. I could almost imagine I was back in Phuket...
