Two Step Spicy Curry Beef With Basmati Rice Recipe -Musthavemom.com

Fall means it is time to pull out my slow cooker and take advantage of easy meal prep for busy weeknights. It’s a great time to add some new recipes to your recipe box and take your family on a trip around the world so to speak. When Success® asked me if I’d like to share a favorite recipe using their Success® Basmati Rice I was more than happy to spice up dinner time with some new regional dishes. This Spicy Curry Beef recipe was so easy and my family really enjoyed it. It wasn’t too spicy for my kids to eat either.

To make the Spicy Curry Beef all you need to do is dump coconut milk, water, curry paste, lime, cumin, red pepper flakes, onion, bell peppers, garlic, ginger, salt, and pepper into your slow cooker, add the beef and cook for 8 hours on low. Start it in the morning and it’s ready by dinnertime. Then shred the beef and add back into the slow cooker and it’s ready to serve! I served it over Success® Basmati Rice which proved to have excellent flavor!

Success® Basmati Rice is ready in ten minutes and is boiled in the BPA free bag so prep is quick and easy. My family LOVES this new Basmati Rice. The flavor is rich and elegant. My kids said it tasted like popcorn which I thought was funny. They gobbled it up so I don’t care what they want to compare it to! The rich, nutty flavor was a great deviation from the normal brown rice we usually eat. Success® Basmati Rice is the only boil-in-bag Basmati rice available. It’s long and slender and elongates 3-4 times in length when cooked.

Making it was easy and required placing the pre-portioned bags in the water and bringing it to a boil.

Once they were done I cut open the pouches and poured them into a bowl. The rice was fluffy and I loved how each grain stayed separated from one another.

  1. That sounds absolutely delicious! I love dinner like this 🙂

  2. I love that the more flavorful rice is available in the boil in the bag I actually saw all the varieties at the grocery store last night. I used to use them all the time and the one downside was how bland the rice was. Now I know that if I am somewhere without my rice cooker I can run to the store and pick these up to make as part of a great meal. I had no idea they were BPA free huge bonus!
