Beef and Peanut Slow Cooker Curry

This beef and peanut slow cooker curry is a simple and easy curry that suits my little ones. Not too spicy but has a good flavour. I also avoid salt in these recipes so add to taste if required. Other vegetables that would suit this include red capsicum and potatoes.


  • 700g diced steak
  • Peanut oil
  • 3 small sweet potatoes, diced into chunks
  • 2 carrots, cut into slices or however you like
  • 1/2 cauliflower, chopped into florets
  • 1 tin baby corn spears
  • 1 large onion or 2 small onions, diced
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp minced ginger
  • 2 tsp red curry paste (if you like it hotter could add 2 tbsp instead!)
  • 2 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice (or lime juice if you have it)
  • 400ml can coconut milk
  • Steamed rice to serve


  1. Heat tbsp of peanut oil in frying pan and add diced steak.
  2. Seal the meat only (do not cook fully) and place in slow cooker.
  3. Add some more oil to the frying pan and add onions.
  4. Cook for a few minutes until starting to brown, then add minced garlic, ginger and curry paste.
  5. Stir for a minute then add coconut milk, sugar, peanut butter and a squirt of lemon juice.
  6. Stir together and season with salt and pepper if required.
  7. Place carrots and sweet potatoes in the slow cooker along with the mixture from the frying pan and stir to combine.
  8. Cook on low for 7-8 hours. When around 2 hours remaining add chopped cauliflower. When around half an hour remaining add the baby corn. (Adding these vegetables later stops them turning to mush!)
  9. Serve with steamed rice 🙂
