Red Curry Beef

This red curry beef is very Asian style and spicy dish. I am using beef chuck roast that is cut into bite size. For the spice I using ready made red curry paste from Thailand. This red curry paste is delicious and not overpowering by the shrimp paste.
You could make your own red curry paste as follows:
Blend dried red chili with shallot, lemongrass, galanghal, garlic, shrimp paste, salt and sugar.

3 tablespoon red curry paste
1 tablespoon sweet soy sauce
1 big russet potato
1/2 lbs chuck roast beef
1/2 red onion
1 cup water

In a big pot, boil water on medium heat. Add in beef and onion. Let it boil for 5 minutes covered. Then add in the red curry paste. Stir and cover. Lastly add in potato and sweet soy sauce. Turn off the stove once the potato is soft. Serve warm with white rice and not to forget the stir fry asparagus and snow peas on the side. Yummy!
