Ok, I am one of THOSE raters that make changes. In my defense, some of it was due to what I had on hand and the fact that a decent grocery is an hour away… That said, what a great dish. I used regular coconut milk and a Serrano pepper (loosely removed the inner core, but left some), I also used a generous hand with the red curry paste (after reading some reviews). At serving time I added about a TBSP of cornstarch. I thought the regular coconut milk might thicken it, but it was still thin. The cornstarch made it perfect! Maybe it was the regular coconut milk, but I could tell it was there and the sauce's flavor was outstanding! The serrano gave it a great kick. I used Costco's stew meat (always, always lean and tender!). We served over black rice and had a salad on the side. Great meal! It was more calorie dense than Cooking Lights version, but hey, that's why I run ;)
Thai Red Curry Beef
Jalapeño seeds add a slight kick to this Thai beef dish. If you want to decrease the heat, seed the jalapeño before mincing.
