  • Heat the olive oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high. Add the curry powder and cook, stirring often, for 1 minute.
  • Stir in the garlic, tomato paste, and peppers. Cook until the peppers are just starting to soften, about 3-4 minutes.
  • Season the beef with the salt and pepper and add it to the pot. Cook until it’s done through, about 5 minutes.
  • Pour in the coconut milk and add the sugar. Cover, leaving one end slightly open to vent, and cook for about 30-35 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Serve over rice or cauliflower rice, if low carb or keto.



Tips and Techniques

  • Use tender cuts of beef for the best results. Some tender cuts include sirloin, ribeye, tenderloin, and flat iron.
  • Leave the lid slightly open to vent while cooking the curry to allow the sauce to reduce and to intensify the flavors.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Use within 3-4 days.
