Panang Curry Paste With Beef & Veggies, Slow Cooker

"This is a spicy curry dish from Thailand with the Panang Curry paste being is a little milder then the other curries. The typical Panang curry uses for meat, but I add some vegetables as well. And using the Slow Cooker makes for a perfectly nice and taste curry dish."

  • NOTES-.
  • This is a milder curry paste then the other Thai curries, using 1 tablespoon should be enough and if you add some hot peppers as well. At around 2 ½ hours the meat is tender, but at 3 hours more so… depending on the cut of meat used. Finally temperatures for different Slow Cookers will vary, so cook accordingly for a nice meal.
