This recipe was ok, tasty but needed something else?? .. added a tin of tomatoes as coconut cream was over powering. I also added extra curry and a little chili powder. Mine also did not have rich brown colour as in previous comments, more a korma colour! (Didn’t matter) probably will use an indian curry paste next time 😁

You could yes 🙂
Or auto that’s 2hrs high at the start then goes to low (if you have auto setting on yours)

Could you shorten the cooking time by starting on high?

This is our go to family night dinner, kid approved

That’s odd as mine was certainly as I photographed it, rich and brown and tasty 🙂
But not to worry ….plenty more recipes that may be more to your taste I’m sure!
Happy slow cooking x

Sorry I didn’t like it at all. I don’t know how the picture shows a brown gravy as mine is a pale anaemic colour and all I can taste is coconut cream. I dont know what I can even add to help with the flavor. So disappointed as it looked really nice.

Quite a nice recipe. I used 1.3 kg of steak, upped the curry powder and added 5 chillis and a tin of coconut milk on top of the cream. I only used a tiny bit of sugar as I love the curry flavour and was not looking for sweetness. I would certainly do this again and will continue to tinker/experiment to get it closer to my personal tastes.
