  1. Preheat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef until browned, about 2 minutes per side. Drain excess grease. Transfer beef to a 4-quart slow cooker and sprinkle with salt.
  2. Combine onion and garlic in the same skillet over medium-high heat; saute until tender, about 5 minutes. Add to beef in the slow cooker.
  3. Stir coconut milk, beef broth, red curry paste, lime juice, peanut oil, jalapeno chile peppers, and brown sugar into the slow cooker.
  4. Cover and cook on Low until flavors combine, 6 to 10 hours.
  5. Bring water and rice to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until rice is tender and liquid has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes.
  6. Stir spinach into the slow cooker and cook until wilted, about 15 minutes. Serve beef mixture over rice and garnish with basil leaves.

Really really bland made as written. It needed lots of jazzing up with more lime juice, sambal oelek, and salt. I steamed some vegetables and threw them in and that was nice. Would make again...

This was delicious and easy! I will certainly make it again.

This recipe is the best meal I have cooked in my crockpot. I love Thai flavours and this curry was bursting with them! I like a little heat in my food but my husband does not, so I omitted the c...

We absolutely loved this dish. The only change I would make is maybe add another Tbsp of the red curry paste.

The aroma emanating from my slow cooker all day was about to send us into a frenzy!! It was all we could do to wait for dinner time, but it was SO worth the wait. The beef was so tender and the ...

I liked it and my husband and son liked it (more than me), but it didn't taste anything close to Thai food. It was like Irish Stew meets Thailand because it was so stew and meatly like. I woul...
