As you know, we love our Instant Pot. We also love Asian food. While we were in Hawaii, Hubs went to several different Asian countries and has tried to incorporate the tastes and flavors he experienced. One of the things is a curry. This is a meat in a curried broth that you eat with spoonfuls of rice. It has just the right amount of heat and the coconut milk is not overpowering. Want to make this dish for yourself? Let’s get go!
First, you need some red curry paste. You can find it on the Asian aisle in most grocery sections. While you are there, grab a can of coconut milk. You also will need some olive oil, steak, and a shallot. Shallots are weird. They look like garlic on steroids but are clearly onion-like on the inside. If you have a mandolin, use that to get thin slices for sautéing, if not, just cut it as thin as you can.
Once the shallot is soft, open the can of coconut milk and scoop out the first inch or so of the can. All you want is the cream for now. But don’t throw it away because you will need the rest. Put the entire jar of red curry paste into the Instant Pot and sauté the cream with the paste. When it turns a dark red, you are ready to move on.
Add the rest of the coconut milk and the steak. Give it a quick stir and set your pot for 22 minutes. Let the pressure come down on it’s own. When you open it, you will have a delicious red broth that the meat is in. And it smells heavenly.
To eat, pour some of the curry into a bowl and have some rice on the side. Grab a spoonful of rice and then dip it into your curry bowl to get some broth and steak. And then try not to eat the entire pot because it is so amazing.
