Massaman Beef Curry Recipe

Massaman Beef Curry Recipe - Pendle Hill Meat Market

Brace yourself for a curry adventure like no other with our Massaman Beef Curry Recipe! Picture this: slow-cooked, melt-in-your-mouth beef, bathed in a fragrant blend of exotic spices and creamy coconut milk. And that's not all! We sprinkle a generous handful of crunchy peanuts on top, adding the perfect finishing touch - our recipe is a curry heaven. 

We recommend using tender cuts of beef, either beef chuck or beef stew meat for the best results. Or if you’re looking for something adventurous try using a cut with bone in like osso buco. 

Ingredients you’ll need:

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 270ml can coconut cream, unshaken
  • 270ml can coconut milk, unshaken
  • 1/4 cup massaman curry paste
  • 4 cardamom pods, bruised
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 dried bay leaf
  • 300g potatoes, peeled, cut into 2cm cubes
  • 8 pickling onions, peeled
  • 1/4 cup roasted unsalted peanuts
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • Steamed jasmine rice, to serve
  • Fresh coriander leaves, to serve
  • Lime wedges, to serve

How to cook our Massaman Beef Curry Recipe, method:

  1. Cook your diced beef - Heat a teaspoon of oil in a large, heavy-based saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook diced beef, stirring, for 4 to 5 minutes or until they’re sealed and browned. Transfer the diced beef to a plate.
  2. Reduce the heat - Decrease the heat to medium. Spoon the thick top layer from coconut cream and coconut milk into the pan. Cook, stirring, for 3 to 5 minutes or until oil separates and floats to the top.
  3. Bring the flavour - It’s time to add the curry paste! Cook, stirring, for 2 to 3 minutes until the paste is fragrant. Welcome back the browned diced beef and add it to the pan and add the cardamom, cinnamon, bay leaf, 1 cup of cold water, and the remaining coconut cream and coconut milk. Reduce the heat to low and let it simmer.
  4. Patience is a virtue - And in this case, it pays off deliciously! Let the curry simmer gently, uncovered, for a good hour. The diced beef will turn tender and succulent.
  5. Add the potatoes, onions, and peanuts to the simmering curry - Allow them to cook until the onions have softened and the potatoes have reached a tender texture. It's time to say goodbye to the cinnamon stick and the bay leaf, remove and discard them.
  6. Add the finishing touches - Stir in a drizzle of fish sauce and a sprinkle of sugar to bring out that perfect balance of flavours. And now it’s time to serve! Prepare your bowls with your choice of rice, and top it off with a generous serving of the mouthwatering Massaman beef curry. Don't forget to top it with coriander leave and serve with fresh lime wedges.
