Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 2 medium potatoes, peeled and cut into 2-inch cubes
  • 2 large carrots, peeled and cut into 2-inch cubes
  • 1 onion, peeled and chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • 1 thumb-size ginger, peeled and julienned
  • 3 pounds beef chuck roast, cut into 2-inch cubes
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce

  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons curry powder
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, cored, seeded and cut into strips
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, cored, seeded and cut into strips

Instructions

  • In a pot over medium heat, heat oil. Add potatoes and cook for about 3 to 4 minutes or until lightly browned and tender. Remove from pan and drain on paper towels. 
  • Add carrots and cook for about 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from pan and drain on paper towels.

Notes

For a smoother and creamier consistency, cook the coconut milk in a simmer and do not boil to keep from curdling or separating.
