  • 4 ounces Thai red curry paste

  • 1 (14 ounce) can coconut milk

  • 3 tablespoons canola oil

  • 3 cups eggplant slices, cut into half moons

  • 1 ½ pounds New York steak, cut into 1/4-inch strips

  • 1 medium red bell pepper, cut into strips

  • 1 (16 ounce) package firm tofu, drained and cubed

  • 1 cup frozen peas and carrots

  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved

  • ½ cup slivered Thai basil

  • ¼ cup chopped Thai chile peppers

  • 1 medium lime, juiced

  • 2 stalks lemon grass, chopped

  • 4 cups hot cooked jasmine rice


  1. Whisk coconut milk and red curry paste together in a saucepan over medium heat until hot, 2 to 3 minutes.

  2. Warm the oil in a large saute pan over medium-high heat. Add eggplant to the hot pan and cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to the pan with the curry sauce.

  3. Add steak and cook, stirring occasionally until meat is cooked through and eggplant is tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer contents to a large stock pot.

  4. Add frozen peas and carrots, cherry tomatoes, basil, chile peppers, lime juice, and lemon grass; bring to a simmer. Simmer, stirring occasionally until hot and bubbling, about 8 minutes.

  5. Serve immediately over hot rice.

Cook's Note:

You can use brown rice instead of jasmine.
