Slow Cooked Thai Beef Curry

Serves 4-6 Prep Time 10 minutes   Cook Time 4 hours   Rated:

I just love the flavours of Thailand. They were introduced to me when I was in a mini series many moons ago and our shoot wrap party was at a Thai restaurant. I was amazed and awed by the depth and complexity of flavours that came through in every single dish. I have been hooked ever since.

I have been to Thailand many times since and if we ever get over this bad flu thing I hope to take a foodie group there one day in the near future.

In the meantime I content myself with making up things I imagine are Thai-ish. Probably not authentic, but so delicious. This is perfect for us who want to eat well but lose steam about cooking around 3pm. Start this early and dinner is served with no fuss. Enjoy.
