    1. Preheat a large pan over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef until browned, about 2 minutes per side. Drain excess grease. Transfer beef to a slow cooker and sprinkle with salt.
    2. Combine onion and garlic in the same pan over medium-high heat; cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Add to beef in the slow cooker.
    3. Stir coconut milk, beef stock, red curry paste, lime juice, peanut oil, jalapeno chilli peppers and brown sugar into the slow cooker.
    4. Cover and cook on Low until flavours combine, 6 to 10 hours.
    5. Bring water and rice to the 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.

    We really really enjoyed this recipe. I did add extra salt from the get go (seasoned the meat) and ended up adding a touch more again after tasting. Also, browned the meat in the oil instead of adding it to the crockpot. After the changes I think it was definitely a 5 to my taste. Next time I might flour the meat to help thicken the sauce (did a slurry at the end this time). Some drizzled sriracha over the top for extra heat!  -  31 Oct 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    I made this as directed (except forgot the basil because we were starving and hurrying) and the whole family loved it: my 2-year old through my picky 13-year old. In fact, everyone had seconds. (That only happens with a handful of favorite meals.) There may be a few tweaks I make next time, just due to preference, but will definitely make again! Would be easy to double or triple and still fit in slow cooker. Served on basmati (our preferred) with edamame on the side and everyone was satisfied.  -  30 Aug 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
