Delicious Thai Beef for the Crock Pot

Sorry for the inconvenience but you can find this and other recipes at the site in my signature. My posts have been overly censored or edited by site admins and it is frustrating, so I'm removing my contributions.. :( I've joined about two dozen forums over the years and all but this one have encouraged a spirit of information sharing so long as it was not annoying. My posts have been as on-topic as anything enjoyed in other forums, so not sure what the big deal is here. Sorry to leave but thanks for the discussion.

thanks for the recipe and lil' bit of crock pot talk. Re:peppers in your recipe. Do you clean out the seeds or just finely mince the whole pepper? Is this similar to that tasty dish your friend brought you from his family restaurant?

this dish is very different from the chicken curry recipe Madras-style I posted separately. primariliy, indian food doesn't use coconut milk. if that's what you're asking about... if you're talking about the Egyptian fellow mentioned at the beginning of the recipe, then yes it is the exact same dish.

i personally chop the entire pepper, but you could de-seed it first if desired. I'd rather use an entire pepper, including seeds, but just use fewer peppers, rather than use several peppers without the seeds. the seeds are part of the flavor too, not just the spice, in my opinion.

Thumbs up Yes, this is awesome!

I was searching for Thai recipes and saw this post. I had to comment that this is a very declivous dish! I started making this after having it years ago in a little Thai restaurant in Prescott, AZ. Green Thai Curry Beef is my favorite and when you say it’s addicting, you're not kidding! Especially if you love Thai food. Boiling the roast for several hours makes it melt in your mouth and the coconut mild suace is amazing. I however, love it with rice on the side. I will sometimes make this just for myself when I'm craving it.

One thing, I noticed your recipe did not include fish sauce? I always add a teaspoon of fish sauce to my recipe. Try it, it's good.

Now you've got me curious. My recipe is definitely of a red color, thanks to the tomato sauce. But you mention Green curry. What may I ask makes yours green?

Green Curry Beef

We're not talking Green Eggs & Ham green! Haha. You can use green curry or in your case red curry. Slight difference in flavor. The coconut milk doesn't turn dark green, but rather a very light light hue of green. So slight you have to stare at it to see the green.

What makes it green? I see yours uses curry paste, so who knows what's in that. Personally I avoid store-bought curry combinations and prefer to make the curry from scratch. In this case, the red curry is from tomatos.
