- While there are lots of ingredients the method is really quite simple.
- Slice the turmeric, garlic, ginger, galangal, and red onion and put in a food processor
- Peel the outer layer of the lemongrass and chop off the ends. Give the lemongrass a bash with the end of the knife to help release the flavor
- Slice open the chilli and deseed them (because if we leave in the seeds it may make it too hot) and then slice them and add to the food processor
- Also, add some of your water just to make it easy to blend into a paste.
- Slice the meat into large pieces (see picture)
- Turn on the instant pot to saute hot and add some oil.
- Tip in the paste and cook for about 3-4 minutes stirring well. You can tell when it is cooked as the fragrant smell arrives and the color darkens slightly.
- Then add in coriander and cumin powder and continue stirring.
- Next take the kaffir lime leaves and crush them in your hand as you add them.
- Now add all the other ingredients adding last the beef, water, and ½ the coconut cream.
- With the liquid added - again stir well so that the paste is mixed in with the liquid.
