Chefs Tip: If you prefer a mild curry remove the seeds from the green chillies before you chop them.

Serve with rice and or naan bread.

This worked beautifully with the diced steak - prepare it, leave it whilst you have a winter walk then warm up with a lovely plateful and crusty bread.

    • Excellent recipe in all ways. I used my slow cooker successfully.I can usually
      cook following an easy recipe,but am daunted by anything looking complicated.
      The list of ingredients scared me,but when I read the instructions I saw how easy it
      was I had a go. So to all you fellow men out there with the same cooking skills
      as myself- this is just the recipe for you. For the girls,this is just the recipe for you.
      The man in your life will love it and will think you've been slaving over a hot stove all day! My daughter is coming for dinner this weekend.Iam going to cook
      this for her and collect some well needed brownie points.

    • I tried this recipe a few weekends ago when I had family round, everyone absolutely loved it - the steak was so tender, have ordered more of the steak and can’t wait to sample it again!
