Step 3

Add coconut milk, coconut and fish sauce, reduce heat to low and simmer uncovered for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally until vegetables are just tender.

Return beef and any reserved meat juices to wok and return to the boil. Cook for a further 1-2 minutes.

Step 5

Spoon curry into serving bowls and top with steamed vegetables, peanuts and basil before serving with rice.

Tasty Tip!

Cut potato and sweet potato in 1½ cm cubes to ensure they cook through evenly.
