Slow Cooker Spicy Beef Curry Stew

    8 hours 15 minutes

    This hearty, spicy beef stew is only for those that can handle the heat. I prefer to make it in the slow cooker, but it can be made on the stove top also. Great served over mashed potatoes or rice.

    Great recipe - perfect for fathers day. Will be making again.  -  02 Sep 2012


    Brilliant but changed it to 8 Trinidad Scorpion chillies instead of the 1 Jalapeño and left the seeds in.  -  15 Jun 2014


    My first curry attempt in a slow cooker and was pretty pleased with the results. I didn't have a Jalepeno so used birds eye chillis.. It was super spicey! Next time I will add a can of chickpeas and a little bit of flour to thicken it up a bit.  -  10 May 2015
