Coconut Beef Curry

So as to avoid confusion, we halved the full recipe that is given here. Start by browning 2lb. beef stew meat in 2T olive oil. Add two sliced onions, 2 cloves of crushed garlic, 2T ground cumin, 2T paprika, 2T red curry paste (you can buy curry paste from firey to mild so choose the one you like, but, some heat is nice), and 1t cinnamon. Stirr until fragrant. At this point the original recipe calls for placing the mix in a crockpot. We had used only 1 lb. of meat, so decided to cook in a low heat oven instead of the crockpot. Whichever you choose, add 1lb. baby carrots, and 4 medium diced potatoes. Add 2T tomato paste, 1/2C water, and 1- 14oz can of coconut milk. Stir and place in a 250 F oven for about 3 hrs or until the meat is fork tender. In the crockpot, cook on low for 8-10 hrs. We served it with steamed broccoli and crusty bread for the wonderful sauce that is generated. Enjoy a "big red" wine with this dish.
