Coconut Beef Curry with Rice

Coconut Beef Curry with Rice

Prep – 10 mins

Cook – 30 mins

Serves – 4           


Super simple bowls made by simmering ground beef in a coconut curry mixture spiced with cloves and nutmeg and served over a bed of rice.



  • 2 Tbsp red curry paste
  • 1 (14.5 oz) can of unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • ¼ tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves
  • 1 ½ lbs ground beef

Top Tip: Adding 1 roughly chopped onion will help balance out the acidic pH in the dish from the red meat. 


For serving

  • Jasmine rice
  • 1 small cucumber (sliced)
  • 2 medium limes


  1. In a large skillet, over medium heat, add the chopped onion and then red curry paste and cook on slow or medium heat until warmed through and fragrant for 5-6 minutes.
  2. Add coconut milk, cinnamon stick, nutmeg, and cloves; stir to combine for another 2 minutes.
  3. Add ground beef and stir to combine all ingredients and break apart beef.
  4. Bring to boil; stirring frequently to continue to break apart beef and cook through. 
  5. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 25-30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  6. Remove from heat and discard cinnamon stick. 
  7. Serve over bed of rice with cucumber slices and squeeze ¼ lime on top.
