Enjoyed it again tonight
Skipped the browning (but still floured it)
Doubled everything (except the cornflours)
Left out the liquid chicken stock & instead added 2tsp dry chicken stock powder to 400ml coconut cream instead 🙂

If you are going to double the intended cooking time I would definitely skip the browning stage as that will help it cook longer 🙂

Can it be cooked on low for 6hrs?

So Good!! Used veggies i had on hand – carrot, broccoli and brown onion and served with brown rice. Had all empty bowls and no complaints!.
Will probably use a little less corn flour and add a little chilli to mine next time as I like a little fire in mine.

This recipe was really delicious. I only had coconut cream and added more peanut butter and soya sauce! Husband is a bit fussy but came back for seconds! Thanks Simon

I made this for my dad. He thoroughly enjoyed it. I doubled the recipe so he could have some frozen meals of it as well. I did not double the cornflour. Next time I’m going to use half smooth peanut butter and half crunchy just to see what that’s like. I’ll also add extra peanut butter. 😉

So, I made this for the family the other night. 15 yo daughter who declared that she doesn’t eat beef
was the first to say this dish is ” a keeper “. It was delicious.

A big winner in my household, served it with rice this evening. Such an easy dish to make, I will definitely be making this one again!

I added juice of 1/2 a lime and half a chicken stock cube (dissolved in a boiling water) at the end to enhance the flavour a bit more – YUM
great simple recipe will use again thanks!

Have not cooked for a while, but it came back as a true favourite.

I would … except probably the cornflour to thicken may not need full double of that
