READY IN: 2hrs 25mins




  • Heat 2 tablespooons of the oil in a large casserole dish and brown the beef on all sides. Set aside, add 1 1/4 cups cold water to the dih and scrape the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon. Retain these juices.
  • Heat the remaining oil and cook the onion and chili peppers for 5 mins until soft.
  • Add the curry paste and turn up the heat for 2 mins or until the onion is going a light brown in colour.
  • Return the beef to the pan along with the beef juices, coconut milk and broth.
  • Cook, uncovered, over a very gentle heat for 1 1/2 hours so that it is barely simmering and the beef becomes tender.
  • If the coconut milk boils it will split so keep an eye on it.
  • Once the beef is quite tender, add the sweet potatoes and cook for 20 mins or until they are soft.
  • Season with the fish sauce and soy sauce.
  • Sprinkle with cashew nuts and cilantro and serve with a bowl of rice on the side.
