    kg beef brisket (gravy beef, or shank)

  • salt

  • 400

    g coconut cream

  • 3/4-1

    cup massaman curry paste (bought or made)

  • 250

    ml water

  • 4

    cinnamon sticks

  • 4

    bay leaves

  • 6

    waxy potatoes, peeled and diced in 2-3cm cubes

  • 2 -3

    tablespoons fish sauce

  • 2

    tablespoons grated palm sugar

  • 2

    tablespoons tamarind paste or 2 tablespoons lemon juice

  • 4

    tablespoons roasted peanuts, crushed

Directions

1 Trim meat of excess fat and sinew and cut into 2-3cm cubes. 2 Heat the oil in a heavy-based pot and fry the onion until brown. 3 Add the meat, season and continue to brown all over. 4 Add curry paste, heat through until fragrant. Add half the coconut cream, lower the heat and cook gently for about 5 minutes. 5 Put the potatoes on the bottom of the slow cooker. 6 Pour the mix on top of the potatoes. 7 Add the water, remaining coconut cream, cinnamon and bay leaves and cook on LOW, covered, for 8 hours. 8 In the last hour, season to taste with fish sauce, palm sugar and tamarind paste. (I like to add a few handfuls of peanuts, too). 9 Garnish with peanuts and coriander and serve with steamed basmati or jasmine rice.
