Braised Thai Green Curry Beef

Braised Thai Green Curry Beef

Ever since the last time I used Thai green curry paste I’ve been wanting to use it again. I love the flavour it has and the spiciness it can add to food (depending on how much you add of course). This time I used it with beef and the result was SO good! The beef so tender – it should always be braised – that it flakes off, delicious!

Check out the recipe below the pictures.
