  1. In a medium bowl, mix together the ground lamb, bread crumbs and steak seasoning until well blended. Form into meatballs about 1 inch in diameter. Heat a greased skillet over medium-high heat and fry the lamb balls until they are a bit black and crusty, about 5 minutes. Remove balls from pan and set aside.
  2. Toss the curry paste into the hot skillet and fry for about a minutes. Then pour in the entire can of coconut milk and lower the heat. Let the mixture simmer, stirring frequently for 5 to 10 minutes. Serve the meatballs and curry sauce over rice.

The curry sauce was good (and EASY!) but the meatballs were too rich/greasy and too heavy for the sauce. I preferred it with chicken, potatoes, and onions for a lighter meal.

We really really liked this but it needed a little bit of tweakage. First of all, I added a couple of minced cloves of garlic, plus half an onion very finely diced to the meat mixture. I also softened a diced jalapeno in the skillet while browning the meat balls. I strongly suggest making this the day before you plan on eating it - the flavors meld so nicely. Also, if you're not used to cooking with green curry paste, add it a little bit at a time until it's how you like it. It has a very distinctive taste. Thanks, Jon!

We really liked this... but I did have to make a couple of additions... just 'cause I can't seem to leave a recipe alone! I added a little yogurt to take some of the bite away as my green curry paste is REALLY hot and hubby had to work the next day! Also added a squeeze of lime juice and topped with chopped cilantro! I'm sure it would have been good even if I hadn't messed with it! We had it over jasmine rice... and loved it!! Thanks!
