let's cook!

  1. Bring big pot to stove on [medium-low] heat, add just ½ the can of coconut milk.
  2. When the coconut milk starts bubbling, add SimpliThai Matsaman Curry Sauce. Keep stirring occasionally to prevent burning, keep stirring ~2-3 min.
  3. Add the meat and stir, let it cook for 5-10 min. (or until meat is half-cooked (change in color)).
  4. Add the water, add the rest of the coconut milk, stir. Turn heat to [medium-high] to bring it to a boil.
  5. When it boils, add chopped potatoes, carrots, yellow onions, peanuts, (optional) Thai chili, and spices (cinnamon, star anise, and bay leafs). Stir well and bring it to a boil.
  6. When it boils again, lower the heat to [medium-low] and let it simmer for 15-20 minutes or until you are pleased with the texture of the meat & vegetables. (adjust the overall taste of the curry with salt and/or water)
  7. Then turn off stove.

Serve with rice.
