Red Thai Beef Curry

READY IN: 2hrs 20mins
Recipe by The Flying Chef

Here is a yummy red Thai curry recipe, it is also good made with lamb. I used Thai Kitchen brand, red curry paste. I do have a recipe for making your own from scratch which is great, and you can store the paste for up to 4 weeks in the fridge. As I didn't have any on hand I used a store bought one to save time and I have to say Thai Kitchen does do a good paste.

Delicious, my husband thought I'd bought a takeaway from our local Thai restaurant. I added sliced red peppers, sugar snaps and baby corn 20 mins before the end of cooking and served with rice noodles. The recipe was a winner with the whole family.
