    Marlz on your advice I also got the Valcom curry paste and it made this recipe sooooo much simpler....I found it to be easy to make and I also added a handful of frozen cross cut green beans for colour and used casserole beef and slowed cooking time to about 4 hours....it's not hot at all despite how scary the paste looks....if you wanted hot you made want to add so sliced red chillies to it as well  -  25 Aug 2014  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
