  • 3 potatoes
  • 1/2 pound carrots
  • 2 lbs thinly sliced beef
  • 3 shallots
  • 3 inches ginger
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • Stems from one bunch of cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala
  • 1 1/4 cup peanuts
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 cans coconut milk
  • Chopped cilantro leaves
  • 2 cups jasmine rice


  • 1
    Chop the carrots and potatoes into thick matchsticks. Roast at 450°F until tender.
  • 2
    In a food processor or blender, make a paste out of the shallots, ginger, garlic, cilantro stems, red pepper flakes, garam masala, and 3/4 cups of the peanuts. You probably want to start the peanuts in the blender first to break them down before adding the rest of the ingredients.
  • 3
    In a hot pan, add the beef. Stir and cook until browned.
  • 4
    Add the curry paste and remaining peanuts. Cook 5 minutes.
  • 5
    Add the coconut milk and Soy Sauce. Cook 15 minutes.
  • 6
    Add the potatoes and carrots to the pot and stir to combine. Stir gently so the potatoes don't break up into the sauce.
  • 7
    Cook until warmed throughly and serve over jasmine rice.
