You wil need

  • 20g Peanuts
  • 2 Medium waxy potatoes or sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 4 pieces
  • 1 Onion, cut into thick wedges


Cook the braising steak in a saucepan with 1 litre of water on a low heat. Gently braise the beef for about 1 -2 hours or until tender, you may need to add moe water. You will need to keep the stock that the beef produces for later

At the same time you can cook the potato in a pot of water for about 8 mins (until it's about 80% cooked) and drain

Fry the cooked beef with The Coconut Kitchen Paste in a medium saucepan over a low heat for a couple of minutes and add 100ml of the beef stock that yousaved to stop it  from burning

Add the coconut milk, bring to the boil and simmer for 5 mins and stir frequently

Add the peanuts, onion and cooked potato and simmer on a low heat for 30 mins. Stir the sauce a few times so that it does not catch on teh bottom. Check teh Massaman is not too dry or thick and add some more beef stock to loosen the sauce a bit.
