Here it is: sirloin green curry. If you don’t already know, I have a weakness for curries and just can’t seem to get enough. They are often one of my defaults, but always seem to satisfy. I guess curries have a big place in my heart!
I prefer to eat my curry over zucchini noodles, but cauliflower rice works too. Heck, you can really eat it on top of any vegetable or completely on its own. There’s no way to go wrong!
Cheers and enjoy!
Siroloin Green Curry
- 2 tsp coconut oil
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 large yellow onion, sliced in half moons
- 1 jalapeno, seeded and chopped
- 1 lb petite top sirloin, thinly sliced
- 13.5 oz can full-fat coconut milk
- 2 Tbsp + 1 tsp green curry paste (I use this brand)
- Pinch of cayenne pepper
- 1 Tbsp coconut aminos
- 1/2 small head cauliflower, cut into medium-sized florets
- 1 large carrot, chopped
- 8 oz can bamboo shoots, drained
- 2 Tbsp fresh basil, chopped (use Thai basil if you can find it)
- Sliced green onions, optional
- Melt coconut oil in a large skillet or wok over medium heat. Add the garlic, jalapeno and onion. Saute a couple minutes and then add the sliced sirloin. Continue to saute for a few minutes, stirring occasionally.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the coconut milk, curry paste, coconut aminos and cayenne. Add to the pan with the meat and onion mixture, and stir.
- Add the carrot, cabbage and cauliflower and stir. Bring to a simmer over medium-low heat and cook for 5 minutes or so, stirring occasionally.
- Next, stir in the bamboo shoots and stir. Once heated through, mix in the chopped basil.
- Serve straight up or atop of zucchini noodles. Garnish with green onion, if using.
Yields: 4-5 servings
I too love curry & have a place for it in my heart. I think you know my plans this Saturday, since it involves Dick’s Kitchen 🙂 The rest of the weekend will be homework, homework & then more homework. Having to log 3 days of eating for the nutrition section of my health class & grains is a section they have listed. Wonder what my instructor will say when she sees I’m eating none. Should be interesting. Have fun blueberry picking! I’m jealous, as they’re some of my favorite berries & my mom gave us the last of what’s left on their bushes. Hoping to get my new punching bag settled into a room this wekeend to start using it so the training I’m getting with Jesse takes on a new level & my aim is better, LOL.
Yep, I know your plans and am excited for you to try Dick’s Kitchen. You’ll love it! I feel ya on the homework and am glad that’s pretty much behind me. You probably remember when I had to do a 3-day food log, which obviously contained no grains either. My teacher understood that people didn’t need to eat grains though, so it was fine. Although, she was surprised that I only consumed about 19-20% calories from carbs each day (versus 50-55% from fat and 25% from protein). That was funny. The differences between sugar-burners and fat-burners, right there. Anyway, you know better than the conventional wisdom taught in the mainstream, so don’t worry about what your teacher thinks (not that I think you will though). There is no such thing as an essential carbohydrate anyway! Grains are so stupid and people who think we need them fire me up!
Have fun playing with your new punching bag! Sounds like a good time. See you soon!
Your super awesome co-worker Megan
Sunday Parkways is in North Portland this weekend and it goes right by my place (a block off). You guys should check it out, it’s really fun 🙂 http://www.portlandoregon.gov/transportation/article/456583
Wow, you are a super awesome co-worker! Thanks for sharing, Megan…I didn’t know!
This looks SUPER fantastic!
On another note, I found a grass-fed burger place not too far from where I’m staying. CHUBurger. I actually really like it – it’s not the atmosphere of Dick’s or Besaw’s by any means, but it’s nice to be able to go out for a burger. They also have home-made ketchup ~ even a ginger flavored. I’m not a ketchup eater, but I thought it was unique and exciting!
Have fun this weekend.
Thanks, Ashley! I’m glad to hear you found a good burger joint and it sounds unique in its own way. Ginger ketchup sounds interesting too….might be something for me to experiment with at home!
I love the Simple Supper Fridays. They are always my favorites!
I am jealous of your 15 pounds of blueberries. I would feel totally rich if I had those in my freezer! I’d think “If all else fails, I’ve got organic blueberries to energize me.” 🙂
Thank you so much, Mary Catherine! That’s so sweet of you to say 🙂
Yes, I’m fortunate to have all those blueberries in my freezer. We’re blessed with lots of fresh berries in the Pacific NW!
If I put 15lbs of strawberries in my fridge there wouldn’t be room for anything else lol. Love the recipe and yes I did have to do jury duty once years ago but actually I got out of it, I can’t remember how though!
ummmmm I mean blueberries lol!
Well, we didn’t put them all in the fridge…about 99% went in the freezer and the small bowl we kept in the fridge didn’t last long! We mainly just want some more to have fresh for eating, but will probably end up freezing more too.
Hehe I know was joking around since the fridges in England are half the size of the ones there! The traditional English fridges are SOOOO small but we have a ‘big’ one by their terms! I’ll have to take a photo of our fridge/freezer and show you 🙂
I am absolutely obsessed with making curry now! My absolute favorite mix (you must try it) is coconut milk, curry powder, and chili garlic paste. It’s over by siracha in the grocery store. I have never made green curry before but I doubt the paste would go to waste in my house!!
Does Thai Kitchen make the garlic paste? I’ll have to look for it. I assume it’s paleo-friendly?
I am pretty sure it’s paleo but I would check the label: http://www.huyfong.com/no_frames/garlic.htm
