A very simple dish that can takes a long time, but requires very little attention. Let is simmer quietly on the back burner while you prepare other things.
- 2 Tbsp. coconut oil
- 500 g beef, cubed (use a sinewy, lower quality cut like chuck)
- 3 Tbsp Sumatra curry, ground
- 3 cloves garlic, chopped
- 3 scallions, chopped
- 500 mL coconut milk
- Salt to taste
In a large bowl, mix beef, curry, garlic, and scallions. Make sure the beef is well and evenly coated. Marinate overnight.
Heat the coconut oil in a large pot on medium heat. Add the marinated beef and cook for 1-2 minutes. Do not brown the beef- just begin softening the garlic and scallions.
Pour in the coconut milk, reduce heat to low, and begin simmering until the beef is tender, 3-4 hours. Be sure to gently stir on occasion so the coconut milk doesn’t separate. You will need to add water from time to time as well.
When the beef is tender and coconut milk reduced to your liking, remove from heat and serve with rice.
