4 Ingredients: Beef & Coconut Satay

This stir-fry produces a super yummy sauce, add to it whatever veggies you have; chopped capsicum, onion, carrot, celery or pineapple.


500g diced beef (also great with pork, chicken or prawns)
1–2 teaspoons curry powder
2 tablespoons (50g) crunchy peanut butter
1 cup (250ml) coconut milk


1. Heat a large nonstick frying pan until hot.

2. Add 2 tablespoons of water and cook the beef for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until brown.

3. Reduce heat, add the curry powder, mix well and cook for 1 minute.

4. Add the peanut butter and coconut milk and stir well until combined. Reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes.


If you are using a cheaper cut of meat, pop it in a bowl with some chopped under-ripe paw paw. Paw paw has an enzyme that tenderises meat, the longer you can leave it the better!
