Ingredients

  • 750g beef for braising (braising steak, chuck, flank etc) cut into chunks
  • 3 tbsp oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 5cm piece ginger, grated
  • 4 cardamom pods
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 tbsp ground coriander
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • ½ tsp ground turmeric
  • ½ – 1 tsp chilli powder
  • 400ml coconut milk (see tip)
  • small bunch coriander, chopped

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat your slow cooker if you need to. Fry the beef in batches in 2 tbsp oil until it is browned all over and tip into the slow cooker. Put the remaining oil in the frying pan and fry the onion over a low heat until it starts to soften. Add the garlic and ginger and fry for 1 minute.

  • STEP 2

    Add all the spices and fry for 1 minute or until the spices start to smell fragrant. Add the coconut milk and bring to a simmer, then tip everything into the slow cooker.

  • STEP 3

    Cook for 4 hours on high or 8 hours on low. Stir in the coriander and serve.

RECIPE TIPS
SWAP THE BASE
You can make this recipe tomato based if you like – add 400ml passata or a whizzed-up tin of tomatoes instead of the coconut milk.
