Coconut Beef

--1-2 lbs stew meat

--1 yellow onion, cut in chunks

--1 can coconut milk

--1 juice from one lime

--2 T of butter (optional. I used it, but don't think it needs it next time)

--2 cloves chopped garlic

--2 tsp brown sugar

--1 tsp curry powder

--1/2 tsp ground coriander

--1 tsp cumin

--1 1/2 T chili paste (or 1-2 tsp red chili flakes)

--1 inch piece of ginger, peeled and grated

The Directions.

I used a 6qt Smart-Pot for this dish. Anything 4qt and up will work.

If using, put butter into crockpot, and turn it on to begin to melt. Add meat, lime juice, and coconut milk. Follow with the onion and garlic. Add the brown sugar and all the spices. Grate the ginger. Toss meat a bit in the liquid and spices to coat.

Cover and cook on high for 4 hours, or on low for 8.

The coconut milk will be yellow from the curry, and will separate a bit. A quick stir will turn it all creamy again.

Serve over white or brown rice.
