Beef Penang

I’ve been meaning to try this for a while now and have spent some time researching various different recipes. They all generally involved a good bit of spice toasting, roasting and pummelling. Now who’s got time for that, especially on a Friday night. My take on the classic beef penang is in no way authentic and I make no comparison to the real thing. It was pretty darn yummy though.

Ingredients

1kg stewing beef, cubed
2 large onions, sliced
4 tbsps thai red curry paste
1 tbsp fish sauce
1 tbsp palm sugar (I used demerara which worked just fine)
2 tins coconut milk
Large handful fresh coriander, shredded
Rice to serve
Lime wedges to garnish

Method

Brown beef in batches in frying pan. Stir in onions and curry paste, simmer for a couple of minutes until onions start to soften. Transfer beef and onion mixture to a slow cooker. Add fish sauce, palm sugar and coconut milk to slow cooker and give it a quick mix. Set slow cooker to high and cook for 3-4 hours or until beef is tender. Keep an eye on your liquid levels every so often and top up with a little bit of water if needed. Add in shredded coriander just before serving. Serve over boiled rice with lime wedges to garnish. Now eat!

Serves 4
