Thai Red Curry Beef In Your Pressure Cooker

I recently bought my first pressure cooker (the Phillips Slow Fast Cooker) and it came with an amazing cookbook. This is their Thai red curry with beef and pumpkin adapted to use potatoes.

  • 2 kaffir lime leaves
  • 1 lemon grass stalk, bruised
  • 1 -2 coriander roots

STEPS

  1. Browning the beef
  2. Mixing in the remaining ingredients
  3. Pressure cooking (30 mins)
  4. Serving

EQUIPMENT

  • 1 chefs knife
  • 1 chopping board
  • A pressure cooker

Browning the beef

The modern pressure cookers with a sauté function make true one pot cooking a reality. All you need to do is chuck a slug of oil into the pot and set it to high sauté. 

Then coat the beef cubes in flour and cook them until browned. Give the cubes a gentle mix every now and again so they don’t burn on one side.

Mixing in the rest of the ingredients

Throw in and gently mix the:

  • 1/2 cup red curry paste
  • 400ml coconut milk
  • 500g potatoes, peeled, quartered
  • 2 kaffir lime leaves
  • 1 lemon grass stalk
  • 1 -2 coriander roots
Pressure cooking

Set your pressure cooker timer to 30 minutes. If you have time, let the pressure release naturally at then end.

Serving

We had some corn cobs and broccoli that need using so we served the curry alongside them. Each person got some rice, peanuts and sriracha hot sauce
