This creamy coconut pulled beef curry will add the spice you never knew you needed to your night. It's filled to the brim with bright veggies and finished with a sprinkling of flair from the crushed peanuts.
Our pulled beef is gently cooked while vacuum-sealed (or sous vide as the French say). The meat may look pale, but it's packed with flavour and moisture!

Finely chop the garlic. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter with a dash of olive oil over a medium heat. Cook 1/2 the garlic until fragrant, 1-2 minutes. Add the basmati rice, water (for the rice) and the salt, stir, then bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to low and cover with a lid. Cook for 10 minutes, then remove from the heat and keep covered until the rice is tender and the water has absorbed, 10 minutes. TIP: The rice will finish cooking in its own steam so don't peek!
While the rice is cooking, finely chop the brown onion. Thinly slice the carrot into half-moons. Thinly slice the capsicum into strips.
In a large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat. Cook the onion, carrot and capsicum, stirring occasionally, until softened, 5-6 minutes. Add the remaining garlic and cook, until fragrant, 1 minute. Transfer to a bowl.
Drain the liquid from the pulled beef. Return the frying pan to a medium heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Cook the Sri Lankan spice blend and tomato paste (see ingredients) until fragrant, 1 minute. Add the pulled beef and cook, breaking it up with a spoon, until warmed through, 1-2 minutes. Add the water(for the curry), coconut cream and beef-style stock powder and stir to combine.
Return the veggies to the frying pan with the beef. Add the baby spinach leaves, then season with salt and cook until thickened, 2-3 minutes.
Divide the garlic rice between bowls. Top with the Sri Lankan pulled beef and veggie curry. Sprinkle with the crushed peanuts.
