This curry we all loved, it does use a store bought curry paste which makes it super easy to make. The meat is crazy soft and the curry flavour is delicious,
I use dry curry leaves, when I can't find fresh, just use less.
I always cook rice in a rice cooker as it is easier, and keeps the rice warm once cooked, until I need it. If you like serve it with coconut rice, if you prefer.
This is a simple dish to put together, but it does need time to cook.
We loved this curry, hope you do to.

Heat oil in a large cast iron or other heavy based casserole dish over medium heat. Cook beef, in batches, turning, for 5 minutes or until browned all over, transfer to a bowl with a slotted spoon. Repeat with remaining beef. Return all meat to dish.
Add curry paste, garlic, ginger and chillies, cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until fragrant. Add coconut milk, stock, onion, lime leaves and curry leaves, bring to a simmer over high heat. Reduce heat to low, cook, covered, stirring occasionally, for 1 1/2 hours or until beef is tender. Remove lid, simmer for a further 30 minutes or until the curry has thickened, to your liking.
