Ingredients

  • 1 pound beef top sirloin steak, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil, divided
  • 1 can (13.66 ounces) coconut milk, divided
  • 1 tablespoon red curry paste
  • 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce or soy sauce

  • 1 small sweet red pepper, sliced
  • 1/2 cup salted cashews
  • 1/2 cup minced fresh cilantro
  • Hot cooked brown rice

Directions

  1. In a large skillet, saute beef in 1 tablespoon oil until no longer pink. Remove from skillet and set aside.
  2. Spoon 1/2 cup cream from top of coconut milk and place in the pan. Add remaining oil; bring to a boil. Add curry paste; cook and stir for 5 minutes or until oil separates from coconut milk mixture.
