How to Make It

Step 1

Heat a large skillet over medium-high. Add oil; swirl to coat. Add beef, and cook in 2 batches, turning occasionally, until browned on all sides, about 6 minutes. Place browned beef in a 5- to 6-quart slow cooker. Add stock to skillet, stirring and scraping to loosen browned bits from bottom of skillet; transfer mixture to slow cooker. Add curry paste, fish sauce, sugar, and onion; stir to loosely combine. Cover, and cook on low until beef is very tender, about 8 hours.

Step 2

Add coconut milk and haricots verts to slow cooker. Increase heat to high; cook until haricots verts are tender, about 12 minutes. Turn off heat; add cilantro leaves, spinach, and lime juice. Stir gently until spinach starts to wilt. Garnish with cilantro sprigs, if desired.

This is an excellent recipe, and using a slow cooker makes it a tender treat!  I made as directed, no changes, and it turned out great . . . a keeper! 

Green beans were too much

This was just okay. The green beans were a bit weird, and they never really cooked, even after giving them an extra 15 minutes. And then they were just everywhere in the dish and unavoidable. I really wish this dish had noodles, as pictured. I should have added them, but didn't have any rice noodles handy. Oh well.
