Add the spices and fry for another minute, then tip the mixture into the slow cooker. About 30 minutes before serving, stir in the gram masala and yogurt and season to taste with salt and a little more chili.

This Slow Cooker Beef Curry is a simple, prepare ahead midweek meal. This crock pot beef stew style curry is also easily adaptable to the Slimming World or Weight Watchers plan as it’s light, healthy and low fat.

This takeaway is the perfect throw in a slow cooker in the morning, come home to delicious smells by dinner time, dish. This Slow Cooker Beef Curry doesn’t use any cream or coconut milk so is lighter, lower in fat and can easily be converted to be suitable for the Slimming World or Weight Watchers plan.

It freezes well, you can add extra vegetables and adjust the spice level to suit all the family. To make your Slow Cooker Beef Curry, start by marinating your meat with the paste and some yogurt (if you’re following Slimming World or Weight Watchers, just substitute fat free yogurt and curry powder instead of paste).

It’s so clever that the pan is super light and suitable for use on the hob too to save on washing up and catch all of those tasty cooking juices. Put the onions, meat and other ingredients into the pot, cook on low and then just add the spinach before serving.

If the curry sauce of your Slow Cooker Beef Curry is too runny and you’d like to thicken it a little more before serving, you have a couple of options: At the end of the cooking time, add about 2 tablespoons of cornflour, mixed to a ‘slurry’ with water.

I find that the best cut of beef for this Slow Cooker Beef Curry is chuck steak. Rice, poppadoms, yogurt with some mint mixed through and a salad of tomatoes and cucumber works really well.

Omit the coriander to garnish if you don’t like it (I hate it but it looked pretty in the photo and brown food needs all the help it can get in photographs!) Also, if you fancy showing me a photo by tagging me on Instagram (@tamingtwins) I LOVE to see your creations.

I decided to pretend that my kids are 5 years older than they are, and hosted a giant water fight. I invited a bunch of kids, bought 500 water balloons (I’m not exaggerating.

They were still gone within 10 minutes) and planned relay races and water guns and everything. And then 2 hours before the party the kids tore a hole in our blow-up kiddie pool.

(We have to dump the water out of the pool every time we’re done with it, otherwise Valentine (who is not quite 2) would be perpetually wet for the entire summer.) So we had no kiddie pool, half the kids are screaming, and I had to bribe Truman with Otter Pops to get him to play relay races with me.

Also, when I ended up being the only adult in a swimsuit, my entire extended family decided it was fair game to do water balloon target practice on me. I think it involved using a broom handle to lock it in place under the arms of a deck chair, or something elaborate like that.

If you can’t find it, this would still be good with just the yellow curry powder called for. If you throw it all in at once, it will start steaming the meat instead of searing it, which is not what you want.

Place the pieces of meat so that they are not touching each other (You don't want them to steam--see photos). Remove the beef to the slow cooker and repeat 2 more batches, adding more oil as necessary.

Once all the beef is browned and in the slow cooker, turn the heat on the pan down to medium. Add the water, tomato sauce, garlic powder, salt, beef bouillon, black pepper, curry powder, and gram masala.

This Slow Cooker Beef Curry is an easy and comforting meal with a kick of spice. Slow cooked chunks of tender beef in a rich and spicy sauce served over a bed of rice.

It's made with spices you probably already have in your cupboard and it freezes really well too, so you can have leftovers for meals in the week. If curry is a weekend favorite for you, then put this on before you leave for work or the school run on a Friday morning and come home to it cooking away.

Two: Add the shallots, garlic, ginger and chili to the frying pan and cook over a low heat for 2 minutes. Add all the spices and salt and pepper, stir well and cook for a further 1 minute.

You can make this curry even easier by skipping the browning stage and just throw everything in the slow cooker without the oil. This curry is one for those of you that can handle the heat, but you can easily adapt it to make it milder and much more child-friendly.

If you are making this for kids, skip the chili (or just use a little if they do like some heat) and focus on the herbs and spices instead. Another great way to adapt this beef curry is to stir in some spinach about 10 minutes before it is cooked.

It adds some extra color to quite a dark dish, not to mention a portion of vegetables. It is a cut of beef from the shoulder and can be fairly tough so is best for slow cooking.

When slow cooked, this fairly inexpensive cut of meat will result in a rich dish that is full of flavor. I thought the leftovers of this were just as good, if not better, than when made fresh as the flavor intensified (as did the spice).

Just make sure it cools fully before freezing. It will keep in the freezer for up to 3 months, or you can keep it in the fridge for 2-3 days. Save yourself some time and make this the ultimate dump meal by skipping the browning stage and add everything to the slow cooker and cook on low for 8 hours.

Add some extra vegetables by stirring in some spinach just before serving, or cooking some chunks of butternut squash when the beef goes in the slow cooker. If you don't want this spicy and you want it more kid friendly, then leave out the chili and let the herbs and spices shine through.
