Beef Massaman4.4/5 (BASED ON 5910 reviews)
A popular dish that was born from Persian influences mixed with Thai flavours, this is a rich but mild curry featuring tender beef, potatoes and crushed peanuts with a coconut and tangy tamarind sauce. Normally cooked for hours in a steel pot, we’ve captured the essence of this travellers’ favourite by preparing the fiddly tamarind and grinding down the galangal and lemongrass and blending it into our signature Massaman paste. A fragrant but hearty curry for any night of the week.

Our 25 minute recipe
Cook the rice and potatoes
Cook the rice according to pack instructions.
Boil the potatoes until tender, then drain. While the potatoes and rice cook, start on Step 2.
Meanwhile, sear the beef
Heat a little oil in a pan over high heat. Place the beef slices in the pan on a single layer (in batches if needed). Sear them quickly so they colour on each side before removing from the pan and keeping aside.
Create the curry base
Reduce the heat to medium, add the onion and-fry for 1 min.
Add the MASSAMAN PASTE and fry for 1 min then pour in the coconut milk. Mix well and cook for 2 mins.
Add the vegetables
Add the GINGER CHICKEN STOCK pot and the TAMARIND. Mix well and bring it to a gentle boil.
Add the green beans and half of the peanuts (if using), then let it cook over a medium heat for 3 mins.
Add the potatoes and the beef and let it cook for 2 more mins.
Add 1-2 tsps sugar to taste, then serve the curry over rice with more crushed peanuts scattered on top.

Love this! Lovely depth of flavour and if you make it with a good quality piece of steak it tastes like a restaurant quality meal.
Craig - Nov 18, 2019
Very rich and indulgent. Made it without the beans, but think that would have made it less rich. Will try again with green beans.

Nice taste but sauce was thin, so next time I would cook it for longer to get a thicker sauce.

We use chicken with this, and is still amazing!

Wholesome, tasty and filling. This meal was a great choice and was something a little different. Not the best meal I've had here but it was a great one to try. Recommend it, at least for a try.
