Directions for Beef Stew:
In a large pot, add the coconut milk, curry paste, and stew meat – stir to blend. Add the sugar and fish sauce. Bring to a boil over medium heat, then reduce heat to simmer and let cook for about an hour.
Taste the sauce to make sure it has the sweetness you desire – add more sugar if you would like it sweeter. Add more curry if you want it to be spicier. Add the potatoes, chopped onion, and peanuts. Stir and bring to boil, reduce heat to simmer and cook for 40 minutes more or until the potatoes are tender. You can serve over rice or by itself. Tastes great with a loaf of warm, crusty bread.
