Cooking Directions for Single Meal

  1. Cook the rice, as directed.
  2. In a large saucepan or skillet, whisk the coconut milk, curry paste, curry powder, ginger and garlic powder. If your coconut milk has separated in the can, it will become smooth again when it heats up.
  3. Stir in the bell pepper slices, peas, shredded carrots and beef strips. Let cook for about 15 minutes, allowing the beef to cook through, the veggies to soften and the flavors to mingle.
  4. Serve Beef Red Curry over rice with optional cilantro and green onion garnish.

Freezeasy Meal Prep Directions

  1. Slice 2 red bell peppers.
  2. Whisk together 4 – 15 oz. cans light coconut milk, 6 Tbsp red curry paste, 2 Tbsp curry powder, 2 tsp ground ginger, and 2 tsp garlic powder.
  3. Open and drain 2 cans of peas.

To each gallon-size plastic freezer baggie, add the following ingredients:

  • Half of the sliced bell peppers
  • Half of the canned peas, well drained
  • Half of 1 lb. bag shredded carrots
  • 1 lb. beef for stirfry
  • Half of the prepared sauce into each bag

Remove as much air as possible and seal. Add label to baggie and freeze.

Freeze & Thaw Instructions

Put baggie in the freezer and freeze up to 6 months in fridge freezer or 12 months in a deep freezer. Thaw in the fridge overnight, or a warm bowl of water for about 20 minutes before cooking in skillet or saucepan.

Special notes

If you wish to make a thicker curry, you could use a 15 oz. can of coconut milk and a 15 oz. can of coconut cream. This is NOT the same coconut cream that is on the alcohol aisle, as that contains sugar and is used to make pina coladas. This is a canned coconut cream that would be near or next to the canned coconut milk, if your
store carries it.
