Crock Pot Beef Curry

I love curry. All the possible versions of it. Meat or vegetarian, sweet or spicy, I’m for all. But let’s be honest, it can be quite a lot of work sometimes to make a nice curry at home. Especially when using beef or lamb the cooking process can take up to few hours. And that is exactly when Crock Pot comes in handy.

Is this magical helper a regular in your kitchen or do you think it’s an unnecessary fad? I’ve always wanted to at least try one. And finally my brother got one as a Christmas gift guess from who and I quickly grabbed the opportunity and made several dishes, among them the Crock Pot Beef Curry. And even though I was sceptical about not stirring the meal during the 12 hours of cooking it turned out great. I can’t wait to get a slow cooker for my own kitchen one day.

Curry can be a lot of work sometimes. Not when you let the Crock Pot take care of the cooking. For example during your beauty sleep.
Recipe type: Main course
Serves: 6-8
  • 800g beef shin, cut onto cubes
  • 3 tbsp oil for cooking
  • 2 small onions, diced
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into cubes
  • 5 handfuls baby spinach
  • 2 pinches of salt and pepper
  • 5 tsp Hot Madras seasoning
  • 3 tsp Garam Masala seasoning
  • 3 tsp cumin
  • 2 tsp ground coriander
  • 3 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 3 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 2 tsp fresh ginger, peeled and grated
  • 1 can of crushed tomatoes
  • 150 ml water
  1. Put a large skillet over high heat and pour the oil in. Let it warm and add the onion.
  2. Fry the onion until it has a golden brown color, then add the meat and brown it too, stirring continuously.
  3. Once the meat is mostly browned, add all the spices and sear for 1 more minute.
  4. Add the sweet potatoes, spinach, crushed tomatoes and water to the skillet and mix everything properly. No need to cook it anymore.
  5. Transfer the curry in the Crock Pot and set it on low for 12 hours.
  6. After the 12 hours the meat should be nice and tender. If not, cook for couple more hours.
  7. Serve with fresh cilantro and ginger. You can even add a spoon of white yoghurt. It tastes great with rice, cauliflower rice, or even couscous as on the picture.
