Quick & Easy Peanut Butter Beef Curry

Coming up with something new and exciting to cook after a full day of work is hard. Thankfully I have a few blogs that I go to over and over again for inspiration! Dinner With Julie is one of those. When I saw her recipe for Quick Peanut Butter Curry, I knew I had to try it.

An easy and delicious curry with a rich peanut butter curry sauce.

  • vegetable oil
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 2 tsp curry paste, I used mild

  • 3/4 can coconut milk


  1. Season steak with salt and pepper. Slice thinly.
  2. Heat oil in a large cast iron skillet.
  3. Sear the steak slices until browned. Remove the slices to a plate.
  4. Add the garlic cloves and curry paste to the skillet.
  5. Cook for a moment and then add the peanut butter and coconut milk.
  6. Cook for a few moments to thicken and add the sliced steak back in.

I would like to make this for my children, but they don’t like anything too spicy. The recipe uses hot chilli powder, can I ask, does this just give the dish a warmth or is it quite spicy? I am thinking of substituting with mild chilli powder, but don’t want to lose the depth of flavour.
