Originally I bought the beef to make beef stew but I found myself with time at home and a craving for something spicy.

This recipe is super easy to do. You can get the beef ready the day before and just pop it into the slow cooker the next morning so that you come home to a hearty meal in the evening, too. Like most curries, it freezes well and tastes even better the next day.
