Traditional Beef Massaman Curry


A delicious and easy mid-week meal that will have the family going back for seconds!

Prep time:10 mins

Cook time:15 mins

Serves: 4


  • 1 tablespoon peanut oil
  • 400g diced rump steak
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 medium potatoes (400g), diced
  • ½ x 210g jar Five Tastes Massaman Curry Paste
  • 400ml can coconut milk
  • 2 teaspoons fish sauce
  • ¼ cup roasted unsalted peanuts
  • Fresh coriander leaves, for serving


Step 1

Heat oil in a non stick wok over a high heat. Cook beef (in batches if need be) for 3-4 minutes until browned on all sides. Remove from wok.

Step 2

Reduce heat to medium and add onion and potato to wok. Cover and cook for 5 minutes to soften without browning too much.

Step 3

Add Five Tastes Curry Paste, cook for 1 minute or until fragrant. Stir in coconut milk and fish sauce, simmer for 5 minutes or until potato is tender.

Step 4

Return beef to wok, add peanuts and bring back to the boil. Serve garnished with coriander.

Tasty Tip!

For a thinner sauce, cover wok while simmering. To speed up cooking, cook diced potatoes in the microwave for 3 minutes before adding to wok.
