Varity of eggplants and beef in green curry


This fantastic Thai green curry recipe features tender, thinly-sliced pieces of beef simmered together with Varity of eggplants and red pepper (green pepper can be added too).  This curry is very sumptuous - wonderful on a chilly night! The homemade green curry paste is what makes this dish sing, so don't be tempted to substitute the store-bought variety, especially when it's so easy to make from scratch, and so very flavorful and fresh-tasting. Top the curry with fresh basil and coriander, and then sit back and savor the wonderful Thai flavors and aroma this dish brings. Enjoy!  (Intro: Darlene Schmidt)

  • 500 g.beef
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1-2 Thai eggplants

  4. Meanwhile, add coconut milk about 2 tbsp each time (add about 3 times) and stir regularly.
  5. Add the remaining coconut milk, season with fish sauce and sugar, stir well, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 30 minutes or until the meat are tendered.

  10. Spoon the curry in a bowl and serve immediately with hot steamed rice.

Add the beef and kaffir lime leaves, continue cooking for 3 minutes until fragrant and the beef is cooked through. Add the coconut milk, season with palm sugar and fish sauce. When the mixture returns to the boil add the eggplants.

This was delicious! I have made this recipe twice and was very pleased both times! I did find that ten minutes is MUCH too long to cook asparagus unless you like it mushy. 3 minutes of sauteeing seemed to be perfect!

Really really good! Added in a green bell pepper to increase the vegetable content, I reduced the curry paste to 1.5 tbsp, substituted light coconut milk, and it was delicious. Thanks for a great recipe.
