Coconut Beef Curry

This healthy and delicious creamy curry is perfect for cooler nights. Made with real food ingredients, this recipe is paleo friendly, gluten free, dairy free and sugar free.     

This is a great recipe to make in your slow cooker or on the stove top. I use organic beef (or lamb) from Sherwood Rd Organics, Brisbane.

As you will see in the recipe I love to serve this curry with cauliflower rice to add a serve of vegetables.

Coconut Beef Curry 


  • 1 tbsp coconut oil

  • 1 tsp cardamom
  • Pinch chilli powder (to liking)

  • Fresh chilli to serve


  1.  In a large heavy-based saucepan, heat coconut oil and and sauté onions for 2 minutes over medium heat until soft.
  2. Add garlic and spices. Stir over low-med heat for 1-2 minutes or until fragrant.
  3. Add beef and brown for 2-3 minutes.
  4. Add coconut milk and bring to a simmer. Cover and simmer for 1 - 1.5 hours or until meat is tender.
  5. Meanwhile, heat extra coconut oil in a large, deep frying pan and add riced cauliflower with 1 tbsp water, stir over medium heat until soft.
  6. Check curry for seasoning and adjust by adding extra salt if needed.
  7. Serve cauliflower rice and curry into serving bowls. Top with fresh coriander and lime wedges and fresh chilli for freshness.

  • Great to serve with a side of greens or add spinach leaves in final 5 minutes of cooking time.
    Adjust spice to liking by adding more or less chilli (can also use fresh chilli).
    If you are sensitive to onion and garlic, omit onion and swap garlic for 2-3 tbsp garlic infused olive oil.
    You can also use lamb or chicken to make this recipe. If using chicken, the cooking time will reduce. 
    Serve with cauliflower rice, brown rice or quinoa.
