I am totally in love with curry right now.

It’s the perfect way to warm up on a cold winter night.

This creamy curry beef stew is actually light and healthy! It’s full of veggies and lean beef, and a great way to keep on track.

I’m usually a grilled steak kinda gal, but the beef in this stew is so tender and delicious.

It practically falls apart in your mouth.

Curry Beef Stew Recipe

Start by cutting some lean steaks into cubes and then browning them in a large stock pot over a tiny bit of hot oil.

Once the beef is browned on all sides remove it from the pot and set it aside.

Toss some onions and garlic into the hot pot.

you know I love me some Gourmet Garden…

Once the onions are soft return the beef to the pot.

Curry Beef Stew

Add the light coconut milk, some tomatoes, and of course some Thai Curry Paste.

When it comes to the paste, you’ll want a red one. They come in various heat preferences, so choose wisely. I got a mild and wish I would have gotten a medium, but I like things spicy.

Let the ingredients simmer till the beef is fall apart tender.

Delicious and easy beef stew recipe

Don’t forget about beef as being part of a healthy and lean diet!

There are several choices of lean beef to spice up your menu.
