Instructions Checklist
  • In a large skillet heat curry paste over medium-high heat, stirring a few seconds or until fragrant. Add coconut milk, cinnamon stick, nutmeg, and cloves; stir to combine. Add beef; use a spatula to gently break up the beef into smaller pieces. Bring to boiling. Cook 5 to 7 minutes or until beef is cooked through, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, 25 to 30 minutes more, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; discard cinnamon stick.

  • Serve meat mixture over rice. Top with cucumber slices, cabbage, shallot, chile, and cilantro; squeeze lime over the food.
