Curry's Never Been This Easy

Slow cooked curried beef with potatoes is a dish that I really enjoy preparing for my family. I make this slow-cooked curried beef with potatoes dish fairly often, especially on holidays. The sauce for the slow cooked beef curry is creamy, hearty, wholesome, and hot. It goes down really well in a hungry stomach. The beef is very tender and not at all tough, and the big chunks of potatoes are a treat. This slow cooked beef curry with potatoes is an easy dish to prepare.


  • Raw beef tenderloin, cut into sizable chunks
  • Raw white, red or russet potatoes
  • Curry powder
  • 1 ½ cups of whole-fat cow’s milk (not 1% milk or fat-free milk)
  • 1 can of coconut milk (preferably sulfite-free coconut milk)
  • Assorted seasoning and spices, in addition to the curry powder. These seasonings should include salt and black pepper, garlic, paprika, oregano and crushed red pepper.


  1. Remove all of the plastic packaging around the raw beef that you purchased at the supermarket, smaller grocery store or butcher shop. Discard all of the plastic packaging and place the raw beef into a bowl, rinse the raw beef meat this water and drain the water out of the bowl.
  2. Wash hands well with antibacterial soap and water. Pat hands dry with paper towels and take selected seasonings from your kitchen cupboard, pantry or counter top to sprinkle them on to the raw beef meat. Sprinkle at least 2 tablespoons of curry powder on the beef meat as well as 1 tablespoon each of the salt, black pepper, garlic, paprika, oregano and crushed red pepper. (This very well seasoned beef is going to turn out to be very flavorful when it is fully cooked)
  3. Take a large spoon to scoop the seasoned raw beef from the bowl into your crockpot or slow cooker. After all of the raw beef has been placed into the slow cooker, then affix the cover of the slow cooker on to it and plug the slow cooker in. Turn the slow cooker on high and then you can proceed to the next step while the raw beef starts to cook.
  4. With antibacterial dish soap and hot water, wash the bowl that had contained the seasoned raw beef very well, perhaps letting it soak in the soapy water a bit first before rinsing it out.
  5. Take several raw potatoes (approximately 8 potatoes would be good). Wash the potatoes well with soap and water. As the potatoes grow in the ground and are shipped to the supermarkets, you might find that there is quite a bit of dirt on the potatoes in the bag of potatoes that you purchase from the supermarket. I like to soak the potatoes and even use a little scrubbing brush to get the dirt off of the potatoes. When the potatoes seem sufficiently clean and rinsed well with plain water to remove all soap residue, then pat the potatoes dry with paper towels, peel the potatoes and discard the peels. Rinse the potatoes in plain water once more and then cut the potatoes into chunks rather than slices.
  6. Next, using an oven mitt on your hand, take the cover off of the slow cooker and add the raw potato chunks into the slow cooker that contains the beef that has started cooking. Be cautious as there might be steam rising from the slow cooker. Put the cover back on to the slow cooker.
  7. Reduce the setting on the slow cooker from high to low and let it remain that way for quite a while, several (5) hours. That is the beauty of slow cookers. You can go about doing other things such as doing other household chores (such as hanging up the fresh laundry in the closets) or reading a book while the slow cooker does its work.
  8. After 5 hours, remove the cover from the slow cooker again. Sprinkle some more curry powder (2 more tablespoons) over the cooking potato chunks and cooking beef chunks, then pour the milk on top of all (the 1 can of coconut milk plus 1 ½ cups of whole milk). Stir well and then place the cover back on the slow cooker.
  9. Let everything continue to simmer on the slow cooker’s low heat setting for another hour. Then turn the slow cooker off. Some dishes require as many as 8-10 hours in a slow cooker, but 6 hours will be quite sufficient for this dish. Remove the slow cooker cover and stir the meal again before serving. This dish would be great alone or served with white rice or brown rice and vegetables. This slow cooked curried beef with potatoes dish can be presented well in a bowl instead of a plate.

The tender well-seasoned beef meat, soft potatoes and creamy, savory curry sauce will surely be pleasing to the palate. Enjoy this slow-cooked curried beef with potatoes dish!
