Paleonutter’s Beef and Sweet Potato Curry
Write a review
  1. 1.5kg Grass Fed Organic Beef (Chuck or Stewing Beef) Cut Into Cubes
  2. 2 Onions, Chopped Fine
  3. 2 Medium Sweet Potatoes, Cubed
  4. 3 Cloves Garlic, Chopped Fine
  5. 1 Green Chilli Chopped (Deseed If You Like It Milder)
  6. 1 Inch Cube of Ginger, Chopped Fine
  7. 2 x 400g Tins Coconut Cream
  8. 1 x Tin Organic Diced Tomatoes
  9. 5 x Tablespoons Beef or Chicken Broth/Stock
  10. 4 x Tablespoons Coconut Oil or Ghee (If You Have No Issues)
Spice Mix
  1. 2 Teaspoons Garam Masala
  2. 2 Teaspoons Turmeric
  3. ¼ Teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
  4. 1 Teaspoon Cumin
  5. ¼ Teaspoon Himalayan Or Lake Salt
  6. Ground Pepper, to Taste
  1. Heat a tablespoon of coconut oil in a frying pan and then brown the beef in batches, sealing all the sides, for about four or five minutes. Put all the meat aside once sealed and pout over the juices from the pan.
  2. Gently heat the rest of the coconut oil in another large pan. Once it’s melted add the spices mixture and gently stir for a few minutes on a medium heat.
  3. Then add the onions, garlic, chilli and ginger and cook gently for a few minutes and until the onions become translucent.
  4. Add the beef, coconut cream, tomatoes and stock, stir and heat through until gently bubbling. Turn the heat down low and leave uncovered for an hour and ten minutes. Stir intermittently.
  5. Add the sweet potatoes, stir in and cook for a further 30 minutes, stirring intermittently. Make sure the sweet potatoes are cooked through with a fork prior to serving.
  6. Serve with wilted spinach or kale stirred through and for an extra bang slick in a spoonful of coconut yoghurt.
  7. This makes quite a lot. I usually freeze portions for time poor days.
  1. If you’re trying to lose weight, ditch the sweet potatoes and just omit them from the recipe. If you have leftover sauce, freeze it in portion sizes and use it another day over good quality snags with cauliflower mash.
  2. Waste not, want not.

    Hi Bendy and Mel,
    Do you have the Tm version ready yet? Is it hiding somewhere?

      Ha! Hiding somewhere! Sorry it’s been so hectic organising the event in Perth and we have got heaps more to post. Where does our time go! I’ll announce it on the FB page when it goes on the site!

        Thanks. I have been waiting for your reply. Can I suggest you link it so we get the reply in our email, so we know to go on the website. I decided to make the Vietnamese Beef Curry plus “skinnymixers” Butter Chicken for a curry night tomorrow night, but would like the Tm version when you are ready. Happy to cook on the stove too. Thanks and Congrats on moving forward, I wish you the best of luck but it’s not needed, hard work always pays off. Xx

          Thanks for all your support Deanne. We started this little hobby project off just for fun and to help spread the good health vibe an it’s taken off more than we ever anticipated. Our website has been put together by Mel with no outside help and very little expenditure (as things like this often cost in excess of $40,000!). However we now ‘have a man’ who is tweaking the site for us as we expand and we will be sorting the email notifications out very soon. Steep learning curve for us as we had no idea what HTML code was a year ago! Thanks again for your kind words. X

    Howdy I am for the first time on this site. I discovered this excellent board I believe that it is truly useful & it aided me out much. I am hoping to offer some thing back and even aid people such as you assisted me personally.

    Made this today and the flavour is amazing, definately going on the regular list as I can see it becoming a favourite here. Didn’t make the Naan as ran out of time but will be more organised next time and do them. Yummy
