"Smooth and delicious beef and potato curry with peanuts. I created a slow-cooker version of this famous Thai dish. This is easy to cook and does not take much time to prepare. It goes well with a scented white rice and steamed veggies as a side."

  1. Place the potatoes and onion in a slow cooker.
  2. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the beef and garlic together in the melted butter until the beef is browned on all sides. Transfer the beef and garlic to the slow cooker while keeping the beef drippings in the skillet.
  3. Return the skillet to the medium-high heat. Stir the coconut milk, peanut butter, and curry powder into the reserved beef drippings; cook and stir until the peanut butter melts. Pour the coconut milk mixture into the slow cooker. Turn the slow cooker on to Low; stir the fish sauce, brown sugar, and beef broth into the slow cooker.
  4. Cook on Low until the beef is fork-tender, 4 to 6 hours. Stir the peanuts into the curry about 30 minutes before serving.

I cheated a little-- I added a little bit of cayenne for kick and cashew paste to make it a little thicker, then served it over rice.. super easy and yummy!

This was just as good as the Mussaman Curry at the Thai restaurant we frequent! Fabulous!

Very good, I substituted Thai red curry paste for the curry powder otherwise made it as is.

Great recipe, the only alteration I made was using a low-sodium broth and cutting back a bit on the sugar. I added a bit of spice by chopping up a couple of dried red chillies and it worked out ...

Thank you! Finally was able to make a curry that was edible. lol It was really good not quite as good as my fav thai place but i'm sure she knows a bit more about making curry than i do. I didn'...

Good, but not great. Really lacked flavor and heat. I'll use it as a base again, but it needs something . . .
