Add this slow cooker beef curry to your dinner rotation this week. It is full of flavor and is delicious served with rice or naan bread.
This beef curry is a great slow cooker recipe that is is full of flavor and some heat. But you can totally control the heat by the amount of curry powder you put in. I over did it a bit the first time I made it. It was delicious but my husband suggested that the next time I make it I turn down the heat just a bit! The first time I made it I used 2 Tbsp of curry and the next time just 1 Tbsp. and it was just right. So depending on your tolerance level choose accordingly. I generally go for a low heat level because I don’t like to sweat when I eat.
I used stew meat along with red potatoes for this recipe. The recipe also called for fire roasted tomatoes and I used some that had green chiles in it for even more flavor. Everything goes into the crock pot along with some torn up naan bread which acts as a thickener. I think I will try leaving it out next time and see how it works. Adding in the naan breads add gluten into the dish which some people may not want. I think it would be plenty thick without it.
Then I just let it cook on low for about 7 hours.
I love serving curry over brown rice with a side of naan bread. I just tear off a piece of the naan bread and scoop up some rice and curry mixture. It is a filling and satisfying meal that the whole family will enjoy.
