Spicy Thai Beef Curry

Serves 4-6
by Tenina Holder

Simple in the extreme; this curry is amazing. I needed more beef in my diet…lots going on right now. (Seriously, you have NO idea!) I really needed to have something hot and spicy, and well, beefy. (Just ask my husband!)

I hope you are all proud owners of the new e-book that is available for all and sundry NOW in a store near you. Apart from that, I took off on a fantastic ForumThermomix Fest weekend down to Gracetown in Western Australia, and am currently doing my Dairy Judge duty. And without precedence, Crio Bru has gone completely insane…never been busier. The Good, The Bad and no Ugly.
