A Creamy Coconut Beef Meatball Curry - delicious tender meatballs with hidden veg in an amazing coconut sweet potato sauce.
You know those days you have a pack of ground beef (beef mince) in the fridge and are not sure what to make? Bored of the usual chilli, spaghetti bolognese or cottage pie etc.
Well, it was one of those days. I had taken some mince out of the freezer with the intention of making chilli, but when it came to it, I didn't actually fancy chilli at all, so raided my pantry and fridge looking for inspiration for what I could add to it for a meal for dinner.
That was when the tin of coconut milk caught my eye and grabbing a sweet potato, I figured a delicious Creamy Coconut Beef Meatball Curry would be perfect.
But You may be wondering, but what has a sweet potato got to do with a Coconut Beef Meatballs Curry?
Aha well, that's a clever ingredient I use for adding a lovely subtle sweetness to my curry along with the creamy coconut milk. It really helps to thicken the sauce and add a lovely silky feel. Like in this Coconut Chicken Sweet Potato Curry, which is one of our favourite curries.
However, this curry may now go to the top of our list for favourite curries of all time.
For the sweet potato mash used in this recipe, you can either cook a whole sweet potato in the microwave or you can steam in a saucepan and mash and then weigh the desired amount, Either is perfectly fine.
This is a great recipe for the whole family too. Adding some finely grated zucchini (courgette) into the meatball mix, really helped to keep those meatballs so lovely and tender and juicy and the kids didn't even realise it was in there. Bonus!!
