Thai Green Beef Curry with Yam & Sugar Peas

Hey guys, this week’s recipe is very customizable Thai Green Curry, and I did cheat a little! I used a pre-made curry paste. Before you lynch me, I’ll say that this curry paste is just the herbs/spices needed: no nasty preservatives! They herbs can sometimes be hard to find. You can find them in just about any supermarket, or Asian market.

But if you feel up to making the paste yourself, it’s nearly exactly the same as Jaime Oliver’s recipe.

Makes 2 servings.

You will need:

  • 1lb ground beef
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 1 pack sugar peas
  • 4 medium sized yams/sweet potatoes, cubed
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 1 pack Thai green curry paste

Step one:

Brown the beef and onions in a large wok. Season with salt and pepper. Reduce to a low simmer, add paste and coconut milk. combine thoroughly.

Step two:

Add the yams and sugar peas. Simmer, lid on, until the yams are fork tender.

Serve alongside a nice cool drink – I suggest almond milk, or kefir. If it’s gets too spicy for you, it really helps take the heat off. 🙂
