Buying tips

  1. When buying beef cuts for a curry, consider the time you have.  Do you need a beef cut to cook in under an hour, or under 30 minutes?
  2. On the other hand, do you have time for the curry to slow simmer for a couple of hours, or even in the slow cooker while you’re at work?

Tips & Techniques

Ready-made curry pastes make an instant flavour base

  1. Match the paste to the style of beef curry you’d like, such Thai or Indian.
  2. Start out by choosing mild varieties, as the hot ones can be very hot.
  3. Cook the curry paste in a little oil over a medium to low heat, to allow the flavours to fully develop.

Essential steps for a slow cook curry

  1. Coat the meat with oil rather than adding oil to the pan so the meat browns well.
  2. Brown the meat in small batches. Keep the heat at medium-high. Remove meat from pan, add the liquid and bring liquid to the boil.
  3. Reduce the heat to low, so the liquid is at simmering point before returning the browned meat to the pan.
  4. Check that the dish simmers gently during cooking. Stir occasionally and adjust the heat if needed.
