2T coconut oil (or more)
1 red or brown onion, diced
3T curry powder
A few garlic cloves, crushed
1T crushed ginger
1T chopped coriander
1T cumin
1T paprika
1t cinnamon
1 can coconut cream


1. Heat oil in a large frying pan.

2. Add onion and sauté for two minutes.

3. Add all spices and herbs, and stir gently for three minutes.

4. Add beef, stirring and browning evenly.

5. Add can of coconut cream, then fill the empty can with water and pour it into the pan.

6. Stir well, and bring the lot to the boil.

7. Reduce heat and maintain a gentle simmer for 60 to 90 minutes.

Enjoy alone or on various primal veggie combinations - I tried broccoli rice for the first time when I made this, and it was delicious! I was trying to use up all the veg in my fridge when I made this, and found that EVERYTHING goes well with curry - even cheese!

Looks good! I just started my own personal Primal/Crossfit challenge and so I'm searching out other Primal/Paleo blogs for some inspiration. I need you guys!! Lol!
I'll be showing my face here more because I've been poking around and have seen so many yummy looking recipes of yours! Bless you for that! I am a fast food/cereal/soda/sugar/pasta addict. So... yeah, its going to be tough.

Stupid question, does the "T" in the ingredients stand for teaspoon or tablespoon?

Big T = tablespoon
Little t = teaspoon

There are no stupid questions - especially now that recipe books aren't ubiquitous... :)

What size can of coconut? Is coconut cream the same as coconut milk?
