Tips

  • I use a slow cooker for this recipe, but if you don’t have one, you can easily use a stock pot or Dutch oven. If you are using either of these, you’ll just want to simmer on low with the lid on. Be sure to check it every half hour or so and stir it up.
  • This only takes 2 hours in the slow cooker. My slow cooker has a warm setting that it automatically goes to after the cooking time is done, so I can easily make this any time of day and it just is warming in the slow cooker for when I want to eat it! This makes this an incredibly easy dinner!
  • I like to serve this with white rice. But you could also do brown rice, wild rice, quinoa, noodles, or even over a bed of cabbage.
  • I use a red curry paste, making this an incredibly easy dish to make as you just need the one item and not a ton of spices! You can use any kind of red curry paste you like, there are so many different kinds with a little different flavor. I linked the one I used above in the ingredients section.

I like to serve white rice with this as it’s more traditional. But, you could also do brown rice, wild rice, quinoa, noodles, or even just over a bed of cabbage.
