    Coconut Curry Beef Stew


    This mouthwatering Coconut Curry Beef Stew delivers the most tender and flavorful meat and veggies with just a few basic ingredients. Cooked in coconut milk and flavored with warming spices, it’s cozy, hearty, and perfect for long, cold nights. Plus, the recipe is one-pot and easy to follow.  

    Start by browning the beef in olive oil before adding onions, garlic, and ginger. Once everything has had a few minutes to cook, add the seasonings and aromatics. I love using yellow curry powder, cumin, soy sauce, brown sugar, black pepper, and a few bay leaves. Now, stir in the coconut milk. Let everything simmer until the meat is cooked through. Once the beef is fork-tender, add the potatoes and carrots and cook for another 15 minutes. Remove from the heat and let rest for about 20 minutes. Serve over rice garnished with red chili pepper, fresh cilantro leaves, and sesame seeds, and you’ll have a delicious full meal.

    Steps to make Coconut Curry Beef Stew


    Cook beef


    In a Dutch oven or large cooking pot over medium-high heat, heat 2 tablespoons vegetable oil for 2 minutes until the oil starts to sizzle and shimmer. Add in the beef chunks and stir well. Cook for 6-8 minutes until the beef browns on all sides.


    Add onions, garlic and ginger


    Add 1 sliced onion, 1 tablespoon minced garlic, and 1 teaspoon grated ginger. Cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 2 minutes.


    Add seasonings


    Add ¼ cup yellow curry powder, 1 tablespoon cumin powder, 2 tablespoons soy sauce, 2 tablespoons brown sugar, 1 tablespoon ground black pepper, and 2-3 bay leaves. Cook, stirring, about 3 minutes.


    Add coconut milk


    Stir in 2 cans coconut milk. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cover with a lid. Simmer for 25 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the beef is tender. Use a fork to check the doneness of the beef. If you can insert a fork in the center of the beef chunk with little resistance, it's fork-tender.


    Add potatoes and carrots


    Add the potatoes and carrots, stir to combine, and bring to a simmer uncovered. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes until the potatoes and carrots start to soften. If the sauce gets too thick, add ¼ cup water to thin out the sauce.


    Let rest


    Remove the pot from the heat and let the stew rest for about 20 minutes. The longer it rests, the more flavorful it gets.



    Serve over rice, garnished with red chili pepper, fresh cilantro leaves, and sesame seeds.
