My recipe provides a lot of sweet heat. The mango and coconut milk taste tropical and the curry paste adds a little fire. It’s a perfect dish to spice up the traditional offerings of the season. To make a milder dish, just reduce the amount of curry paste. —Terri Lynn Merritts, Nashville, Tennessee

  • 2 tablespoons peanut oil or canola oil
  • 3 tablespoons red curry paste
  • 2-1/2 cups coconut milk
  • 2-1/2 pounds boneless beef chuck roast, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 cup dried mango, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • Optional: Hot cooked rice, sliced red onions, fresh cilantro and lime wedges


  1. In a Dutch oven, heat peanut oil over low heat. Add curry paste; cook and stir 3-5 minutes. Add coconut milk; cook and stir 3-5 minutes longer.
  2. Stir in beef, mango, salt and pepper. Increase heat to medium-high; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until meat is tender, about 2 hours. If desired, serve with rice, onions, cilantro and lime wedges.
