I found that this dish was not spicy at all (I do like food with a kick!) and that the beef taste permeated the dish completely - it ended up tasting slightly better than a regular beef stew. I used top sirloin, 3 small jalapenos, whole carton of pre-sliced mushrooms, and shredded fresh carrots in addition to the ingredients below. The mushrooms soaked up most of the juice, so not that runny. I was mostly underwhelmed--especially considering all of the fun ingredients that went into this...

this was good. i think i might use a top sirloin next time. used 2 jalapenos with seeds and was not hot at all. will serve more on the side. used kale instead of spinach. served on forbidden rice (black rice). the texture of the sauce did not bother me being on the thin side. it had a wonderful taste!!! (like others, added carrots, red pepper slices and sauteed mushrooms).

So delicious! Followed the recipe excactly except I used kale cut up in little ribbon strands instead of spinach. If you are looking for it , this is a great gluten free, dairy free recipe that is full of flavor ! Will definitely be making it again

I really enjoyed this recipe, even better so did my not so adventurous of an eater boyfriend! In the future I am going to add bamboo shoots and red pepper to this near the end to add some additional textures. Really tasty though and made the house smell delish!

I have been looking for the perfect curry recipe and this is it! Not too heavy but not too light.. I agree that the sauce was a bit thin but flavor made up for it..

Agree that the sauce needs to be thickened a bit next time, but otherwise easy and delicious!! I did add some carrots to it near the end, and may add some sliced red peppers next time, too, for more veggies,

This was an outstanding recipe. The only change I made to it was to use venison instead of beef. Next time I will thicken the sauce a little before serving.

Tasty, the sauce was a bit thin, but thickened up with cornstarch and the spinach. I also added sautéed mushrooms.

Made this last night and thought it was quite tasty! I would describe it as a Thai stew, which was perfect for the cold rainy evening we had. Like another reviewer suggested, I added mushrooms and red peppers to mine. I also waited until serving to add the jalapenos because I was serving to small children and did not want it to be too spicy for them. I would definitely make this again!

I agree that it tasted more like beef stew than a Thai dish. I put in two jalapeños and a red pepper, otherwise made it exactly like the recipe. If I made it again, I think I would only add 1/4 cup of beef broth (which would cut down on the thinness of the liquid and perhaps increase the coconut taste over the beef stew taste) and I would increase the red curry paste, fish sauce, brown sugar and lime juice by 1.5. And I would keep the extra jalapeño and red pepper.

This recipe is absolutely delicious, I dust the beef with cornstarch which thickens the sauce. I also add shiitake mushrooms and red bell pepper. I've made it several times, it's a keeper.
